Varsity Fleet race Sunday, 10 April Report

Hi

Very proud of our team and efforts today. Wind was 0-3 to start, then E-SE 6-14 knots, with fair amounts of shifts and holes in the race course.

We were first in A division, and second in B division overall, and finished second overall. Not often do you finish 1,2 and not win overall, but lights out sailing by Broadneck’s B division team gave them the overall win by a comfortable 15 point margin.

A Division

Connor/Camille

B Division

Stephen/Aidan/Blair

Caroline/Parker

—Peter and Austin there as well.

 

-A few struggles with the race course and getting on the wrong side of the course.

-A few poor gate choices

-tack less after you round a gate

-Overall clean sailing, no fouls, over earlies, or other unforced errors

-Stephen/Aidan ended the day with a 1,1.

-Caroline/Parker notched a 2 in their second race

-excellent competition, and a very good result, and very positive things to build on for this week going into fleet race prep week.

-our B Division downwind speed today was very impressive

-we got better as the day went on. This is a really good sign, and something to use as great motivation

We will plan to sail tomorrow through Thursday, weather dependent. No practice for anyone on Friday.
