Wednesday evening race #9
North Westerly winds at 10-15 knots. Race course was 3 2 1 7 3 7
Boat speed is nice…!!
Detected a pin favor and Ricochet beat us to the pin…see video of the start below:
During our pre start practice we had detected huge left shifts during the lulls – we played and protected the left to good results rounding the top mark first ahead of Ricochet.
Big parade for the next two legs…Decided not to use the chute from 1 to 7 and did a leaward drop at the mark.
Tacked to the left again once Ricochet tacked left behind us, covered the left side once again to good effect.
Gybed early and covered Ricochet to keep the first place!
