Race committee picked course 7 for both A and B fleet which can cause a pile up at the start so we tried to get in a spot where there was not a bunch of big boats. We got a very good start and saw that the east side of the river there was the best breeze so we followed Tantrum. We did a good job of keeping up and we were able to use our spin poll effectively on the down wind leg. We were able to keep up with most of the A fleet but unfortunately for them most followed Tantrum’s lead and rounded the wrong mark. We followed our course with Valcore hot on our trail. On the upwind leg Kimannee took the helm and Ralph played the main as we were a bit overpowered. We were able to do a good job of keeping on our feet on our way to the next mark. Here’s where the fun started. We first tacked with the barber-hauler still attached. It promptly hooked the main stay and Ralph had to rush forward and release the carabiner from the stay. The next mark was downwind and after rounding that mark Albert must have been a bit hot as he took a little dip. I told him dragging in the water would slow the boat but he was having a hard time getting back on. We got everything back in order and were able to still correct over Valcore. Here is the results for the race.
