Well it wasn’t all pretty but we ended up with a second place trophy anyway. The wind were dead aginst a foul tide and Spray got over the line but did not get too far. After a second tack we manage to cross the line and then in a light breeze started to move we manage to tack on all the headers and were makeing very good time even managed to pass some of the “B” fleet boats. We were even with Spray and it looked very good. Then the winds died and where we were it did not return until many of the crusing boat had passed funny there fleet eather was well ahead or way back depending on which tack you took. Well Spray while not in the best part of the course was in a better position than us so by the first mark thay were well ahead but we were well ahead of the others in our fleet. This is when the fun started first we just couldn’t get the chute up when we finaly got it up we started off well off the proper course when we realised the mistake we had to reach as close as we could sail with our chute. We finaly got around the mark and as the course had been shortened the next mark was the finnish. So with all the goofs we still managed to be the second boat over the line in our fleet.
