Bay Shore Race #2 Summer 9 June 2010

Captain Jeff reports:

Wind out of the SW…around 15k…. started out about 2 to 3ft lumpy seas…quieted to about  10K…1- 2 ft at race end…perfect skys…clear visibility…just a perfect evening for sailing…We had 7 onbord, three short of full crew.


Tom drove….  I think our winsdpeed is off as it was showing a steady 17-19k…which prompted a call for the #3 headsail…which was the wrong call as we were slow the 1st upwind leg…   Other than that, the race went fairly smooth… 4 ..1 mile legs….            We were 4th out of 4 in our division….
