Opening Day: 1st Place in 22 Knots...
...And with seas to match. We hit 10.0 knots off the wind. Two guys, ex-crew, elected not to take their boat out and joined us. I told my sailing guru that I was surprised to have corrected out into 1st, what with a very mediocre (safe!) start and one bad maneuver at a weather mark. He said,
Yes, It may have just been a case where the weather selected the boat!
I'm okay with that. The boat and crew deserved honors if I didn't!
