C22 WYC Series 2 Race 2

Melissa is back from her honeymoon!

Full boat tonight with Melissa (helm), Chris/Tariq (sheets), and me (pit).

Winds from the SW 8-13 knots with lots of waves that built all the way from Niagara.
We went out with full racing main and #1 genoa for power in the waves.
We were ready to switch to the #2 if we were overpowered.

Course was 4 medium.

We moved the cars back to spill wind at the top of the sail, and sheeted out for power in the waves.
It worked well!

We had a great start and were trucking along on port tack, when a puff rounded us up and forced a tack.  Actually it was a good move and got us to the windmark right with the others.

Before 2nd upwind leg to the finish we saw lots of boat that sailed into a wind hole off to the right, so we tacked to the left to stay away from that.

We had a great race finishing a minute behind Firebird, but beat them in corrected time by over 3 minutes for first place!

Tariq on the helm coming in

Great racing on Still Time!

Chris recuited his friend Tariq.  They took sailing lessons together 4 years ago.
Chris on the helm.

Course was 4 short with wind 7-11 knots from the SW, full main and #1 genoa.
PERFECT amount of sail with the waves.
We managed the boat in the puffs and really had her moving the entire time.

We finished 3 minutes behind Firebird, but beat them by 22 seconds in corrected time for the win!

Top three sails on Still Time!

Chris is smiling because his PDF is on upside down!
