Around the Island Race (Conanicut YC)
Conanicut Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Sep 03, 2023 | SRM IX (Carkeek 47)
11th (out of 86)
(out of 6)
4th in Class L (fastest, largest boats), and 11th overall - out of 86 total boats racing. Not our usual 1st, but given the circumstances, it was respectable. We raced without a dedicated Tactician, which is a big issue on this boat, and two boats in our class were 66' all-out racers - hard to beat when we're 47'. Need to work hard to improve the chatter on the boat - way too much talking.
