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.
—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.
MASSA Fleet Race District Qualifier teams will be announced shortly, I hope by tomorrow.
Please remember that for sailors going to this event, we will leave Severn School at 1100 on Friday.
