C22 Whitby Fall Singlehanded

First race of the Fall Singlehanded series.

Got down to the boat a little early and got the boat rigged up.  Battery was dead, so no autohelm; I rigged up a tiller tamer for the race.

Winds were 12-16 knots with from the SSW.  I went out with the old main with a reef and the heavy #1.  Course was shortened 4 short (triangle).

A little too much sail going upwind, but the winds were supposed to drop, and you can use the extra sail area on the reaching/downwind leg.

We had 5 boats: 
  • Still Time
  • Berserk
  • Iris
  • Cheeky Monkey
  • Justintime
Everyone converged at the windward mark.

Everyone pulled ahead of me on the reaching/downwind legs.  Need to do something different!

Came last, but not too far behind the fleet.  On a 40 minute race, everyone crossed the line within four mintues.  The magic of PHRF will tell.

Trip Odometer: 8.58 miles
Moving Avg: 5.3 knots
Moving Time: 01:37:00
