C22 WYC Series 1 Race 2

John is out to concentrate on a work project, so I picked up Christine from RazorBill.

Melissa on the helm, with the Chris' on the sheets.

Parking lot was really flooded:

Dock 8 on the left
You had to park your car and get out on the driver's side only!

Winds were a constant 12 knots from the east with gusts over 20.  Full main and #2.  Right amount of sail BUT were were overwelmed in the puffs.

Meliss, Chris, and Christine
At one point a gust came up, and Melissa instinctively turned the boat into the wind to get the boat back on its feet, but the jib backwinded and we did a 360.  You can see it on the track below.

I just hung out in the cabin doing aluminum can physiotherapy on my hand:



New this year is on race 2 and 4 of a series, they are sending a mark boat out with a tetrahedron, and we do a windward/leeward like most other clubs/regattas.

We were the only boat in our class; kinda a drag!

We had fun just the same and were in before most of the others.

Sorry, no sunset picture because there was no sunset.

Trip Odometer: 9.77 miles
Avg Speed: 4,8 knots
Max Speed: 8.2 knots
Moving Time: 02:19:21



My phone is having battery troubles with the RaceQs app:


Phone died after taking one picture with the tacking app the the background, so no 3D replay.
