Wet Wednesday - Spring Series

This shot is taken at the start of the 2nd race in this series.

This shot was taken as we were tacking away from H-Mark!

We finished the last race tonight: a sterling performance of crew work in extremely challenging, changing conditions: a drifter for nano seconds at the start and 90 seconds at the leeward mark, sandwiched between 15-25(!) knots on contrasting seas, reaching a top speed of 9.6 knots!

We were 3rd to finish. For the effort we were awarded 5th place, and won 5th place over all for the series. But after an exhilarating day like this, how we corrected out was irrelevant.
