Re: I had a great sail today.
Blowin 15-20 at the start of a race today, got into the 20-25, back to 15-20, then down to 10-15 for a bit, got rid of 110, about 30 min later, 20-25 for 10-15min, then down, back up........got around the rock, one other boat grounded........got our spin up, tack line sheave broke......got spin down, got the 140 up, doing 7-8.9 knots in a 6.6ksb wing on wing......finished under a 140, just before final mile and turn was in the low 20's, finishe in low to mid teen winds.....got the SMOKE held handicap in division........great day!
This is exactly what I love about sailing. One man's "nice sail" is another man's "hysterical BFS". Nicely done Bluto.
