We did race committee for the first race and actually were asked to help on a boat that had no crew so we sailed anyway but for the competition. But for the second race we were on top. We stated out a little slow in the downwind leg of the course number “8” but after rounding the mark the next leg was all unwind and we started to make ground on Plum Crazy and TomCat but Valcore stayed ahead we did well to the next mark but Tom Cat was in a position to slam us but stayed on tack so we used a anchored boat as a block and tacked right at it and fetched the mark for the short down wind leg to the Hague mark. On the way back we tacked too soon and had to do a short tack just before the line but it did not cost us enough time to loose the race.
here are the scores for the first two races.
