Practice Wednesday 4-25-2018

Lighter air boat-handling today.
Same deal: practice starts, work on timing and acceleration off the line
Re-group at mark 1 and do 3 2 on 1’s, then we will do downwind SNO in “unstable winning” RED: 2,3,5 and RED 1,4,5
We might try a few light-air combinations as well.

Although extremely difficult, this represents what I feel to be a good combination for this event. I am optimizing for light (light winds forecast on Sat), and aggressive, and unpredictability. Be ready to sail in any combination at any time. The sailors going to the Varsity regatta are certainly deserving to sail in the TR, and have demonstrated hard work and talent all year long, and I know that while it may be disappointing to some, we are going with the team that’s clicking right now to try to achieve our goals. There will always be opportunities on this team to excel and improve. Please also understand that regardless of who is on the water this weekend, this will be a team effort, and we will all share responsibility for the results.

If we don’t use everyone on Saturday, I’d like Marcus to be on standby for Sunday as it is supposed to breeze up on Sunday.
