Opening day practice

Practice session between races landed on opening day here in Seattle. Surprisingly few boats out on a really nice day. The Seattle fire boat was putting on a show at the Meadow Point buoy where we wanted to do some practice starts so we sailed up to Richmond Beach. The whole crew took turns at the helm learning what it is like to time a start line. We also spent time getting everyone more familiar with the chart plotter so we all know where we are and where we’re going. The run back home was a good chance to get the A3 out of the bag. Only took a few gybes and we were done. Nice to see the sun again.
