Around the Island Race (Conanicut YC)
Conanicut Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Sep 03, 2017 | SRM VIII (C&C 30)
(out of 10)
Fast Race around the island sailed under the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, a tropical storm while over the race course. Breeze rapidly diminished from 30 knots to 12-15 knots over 2-3 hours as it went past. Fun ride - hit speeds of 18 knots with the 3A. Took a 2nd in class with only a custom 35' racer beating us.
