C22 Spring Singlehanded Race5

Last race of the Spring Singlehanded Series.  Still Time was second in the standings after 4 races.

Series leader Cam on Cheeky Monkey must have been really sick to not make it out.

We had four boats out with 3 Sharks including Terry on his recently purchase Shark called "Psyc 101"

Very light winds from the East, but with Mark 7 missing, we ran a 6 short.

Very glassy

Old baggy main and #1 genoa was enough to get around the course.

On the last upwind leg to the finish, I could see a wind line coming in from the right, so instead of going directly at the finish close hauled I cracked the sheets to a close reach to try and get to the wind.  I didn't make it to the wind, but I did get boat speed up to over 4 knots.

Finished 25 seconds behind Mickey.


Psyc 101 and Foxtrot at the finish

This win cemented first place for the series for Still Time.

Another beautiful sunset coming in the harbour

...and finally at the dock
Nice night on the water!
