3rd (out of 78)



In Class

(out of 8)

2nd in Class (K), and 3rd overall (out of about 80 boats). A strong performance - especially considering five of our 12 crew were brand new to this boat. Missed 1st in class and 1st overall by about two minutes. Looking back on the course, we could have found a few times to make that up. Winds from the S at about 12 knots with some gusty condition to 15-16 knots. Mostly non-planing speeds downwind. Need to hop on a place as soon as the breeze is a steady 15 knots or more.
