Wednesday evening race #16
North Westerly winds at 8-12 knots. Race course was 3 7 3 X
Small mistakes give up the first place…!!
Quite a large left shift and lull right at the start…see video:
Covered successfully and played a little to the left in the breeze down from the channel – rounded in first place. See video:
Early gybe was the move here…maintained our lead…maybe jib up a little early?. This was the Leeward rounding:
This is where the concentration slipped a little with some small mistakes on this beat, primarily letting Hallel go to the right of us 2/3 up the beat without covering. See video for rounding:
Gybed early again and managed to catch Hallel and beat them boat for boat. Finished second.
