New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta
New York Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Jun 12-13, 2021 | SRM IX (Carkeek 47)
4th in ORC Class A. Focused the racing on the other fast 40-footers in our class. Other than the starts, the Maxi72 and the TP52, sailed their own races in their own waters. Managed some fantastic starts on Day 2. Frustrated with a jib that would not get on lock pre-start race 3 on day 2 and, as a result, started about one minute late. While not a podium finish, speed and performance were good for using old, beat up sails. New suit of sails coming in July. As Connor McGregor (UFC - MMA) says "when we are not winning, we are learning." Lots to be learned on this new (to us) boat.
