|Still Time looking mastless|
When I was re-soldering the wind instrument wires, it was blowing 25+ knots from the northwest, so I took the cable out of the mast and spliced it inside the clubhouse.
Got the mast back up at 3pm and was still tuning it when Melissa and Chris came.
FAIL on the wind instrument splice.
That 25+ knot NW wind was now GONE, and we have 3-4 knots from east. Course was set to 7 short; full main and #1 genoa.
We had a decent start and were 2nd to the weather mark behind the T-Bird Columbine.

Bob on Foxtrot was CHARGING along at 1.0 knots towards us on a completely different tack than us. We had no boat speed and could not tack. We figured that Bob carries boat speed from the mark and his apparent wind kept him moving. GPS track said we were stopped for 26 minutes!

In the channel, dropping the sails, we ran out of gas, and had to re-fuel.
