CYC Center Sound #3

At last a fine day for a race! Wind, no rain, we weren’t last and didn’t hit anyone. And we had fun. Success on the whole. We will ignore the part where I screwed up and started 5 minutes late. On the plus side we caught most of the people in our class and made up the 5 minutes. If only we had started on time. Because we were so late to the start line we ended up having to try to barge at the boat end and got peeled off big time with the Express re-Quest. That was exciting. Regroup, trim, keep going.

Here are some photos from the race. Next week we will sail on Tranquilite unless the weather is bad in which case we will take Kinetics out for the STYC Blakely Rock Benefit benefiting The Sailing Foundation.

Thanks to my new club the CYC for putting on the Center Sound Series.

Hard working crew with Tim at the helm
Course was shortened to Alki Point, this is the run home to Meadow Pt
That catamaran made up some time downwind!

Adding a nice photo from Jan’s Marine Photography¬†from the start sequence wind up. Looks like about 30 seconds before we got scraped off for barging!

If only we had started on time. Practice, practice and practice some more.
