I Should Just Get out of the Boat's Way and Let Her Sail

Not much can be said for tonight's race. I am a lot weaker this year than last. At the helm, I was fighting for control going to weather. (The night's breeze was almost twice the forcasted strength.) Was almost early at the start. Indecisive after that. Basically, Dazz was left to sail her self around the course. I cluelessly covered the wrong boat on the final reaching leg, which cost us two boats. Nice rounding at the leeward mark, winning back one boat.

My photography was worse than my helsmanship.
