CHRF Summer Series

It's my feeling that when conditions are like today's - steady at 9-11 knots - CHRF's dynamic handicap compresses Psychè's Song into the middle of the fleet.

In 6 or so knots - variable, the determination, persistence and inventiveness of the crew determines our fate; 16 knots and higher, and the boat takes over.

Wet Wednesday's Summer Series

Where's the Beef?

Here it is:

This is the crew which literally muscles Psychè’s Song around the same boring old trapezoidal course in light, light airs. I can't remember ever before competing so consistently in single-digit wind-strength. But we are!

It would be nice to win some more. (It's that same ol' handicap, right?)

Nevertheless, there's lot to be said for just showing up and contending week after week. Our conditions will eventually return...

And, when they do, we will strike!
