This race is sandwiched in between Wet Wednesday's Spring and Summer Series.
The Fun Race (counting for nothing but glasses) needed a novelty to motivate us. It was decided that MVP would take the start and 1st half of the race at the helm; and that another crew talent take it the second half. Only problem is MVP couldn't be budged off of it. (Doctor Love and I struggle with is the problem! We call it the Helm Hog Syndrome.) Needless to say, MVP turned in an excellent performance, and we finished 5th out of 12 finishers. That's a glass!
Whenever we are relaxed enough on starboard and crossing a port tack boat, some one on board should certainly reach for the camera and snap off a couple of shots. That picture in my mind's eye, looking down the heeling stem of Second Wind with her crew staring intensely ahead would have been a calendar-quality shot!
Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Still, another great time on the water.
