3 in Race Three

We were third overall in race 3 but first of the “B” boats. It was a hot but very nice afternoon to go racing.  The breeze was light with stronger gusts and it did wander about a bit. Race Committee chose course 5 which wasn’t the best for the downwind use of the spinnaker but we did use it.  We were a long way from the start line when the horn went off but kept up with the other spin boats except Tantrum who started on the far side of the river which was the best side (not like they needed any help).  Using the chute was more trouble then mostly helped but fun to try. We would get behind but catch-up through much of the race but got behind rounding the mile marker 0 when we were headed and had to tack to fetch the mark.  With some other misadventures it was well we did as good as we did when Ralph wasn’t sailing all over the place the boat moved well in the breeze that slowly built as the race went on. Here is the race results.  We enjoyed an after race cruse  around the harbor to take advantage of this nice breeze.
