C22 Wednesday Series 1 Race 4

Melissa was sick, so it was just Chris and I.

Winds were crazy 16-25 knots from the north west, so we rigged up a double reef in the main and flew the #3 jib.  The boat was flying upwind in control!

Course was 2 long; first long of the season!

On the reaching legs were were a little under canvased, but we did shake the reefs out of the main for the long downwind leg from 2 to 6 where we gained on the Sharks.  A little too much sail for the last short upwind leg to the finish, but no problem.

We came in fourth across the line and fourth in corrected time.

Man they were moving!

I will take winds like this from the north every race night!
