The breeze was lighter than yesterday, and lighter than forecast. It generally died throughout the day, and we were out of phase from the start. We put up a 13-17-19 in tricky sailing conditions, and we made some mistakes that we know we should not at this point.
Our downwind legs were very good, as we passed boats on nearly every one. Upwind, however, we struggled with fleet positioning, and we did not get off the starting line as well as we could have. Overall, it will be on to the next day as we continue to iron out all the details.
Tomorrow’s start has been pushed up a whole two hours to 9 AM local time. The race committee is probably expecting another building windy day. Hopefully we can get plenty of races in and move into gold fleet. We sit in 39th right now, but a few solid scores could certainly put us in contention to continue to play with the best. Full results can be seen here.
Thanks to all of our supporters and sponsors. Thanks to the US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics especially our title sponsor AlphaGraphics and Gold Partners Atlantis and Rolex. Thanks also to Sperry Top-Sider for their sponsorship and support.
