I did Race Committee for the first race so this was our first race. We had course “6” the longest of the short courses and the wind was light to calm. We had a very good start and were getting ahead sailing to hospital point and i should have keep going but wanted to get to the tide so i tacked but the boat all but stopped so i could not cross the “A” boat behind and had to do a very costly duck then the wind died finely we got across the river where we picked up some breeze and were the second boat around the next mark unfortunately the first boat was Wiki Wiki the best sailed boat in the fleet. We couldn’t catch her and for the rest of the race we stayed close but not close enough. Jeff came out with Rodney and I for his first sail and race and was a great help. Rodney did a fine job as usual. All and all a fine afternoon on the water. Click here for results of the second race. Click for photos of the first race.
