Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

Congrats to Palmetto for resoundly beating Wind Orchid this year. We finished DFL, not only for the cruising class but for the entire fleet. Looking at the replay, we were respectively with the pack, albeit at the back of the pack. We rounded into St. Mary river about an hour or so behind most of you and we, too put up the spinnaker only to have it douse it with a header. Spent 90 minutes ghosting to the finish and at one time we even drifted backwards a bit.

It was another great evening sail, though. No complaints.
