Re: Lack of wind on long distance race

Admiral and I did a 16 mile race last month that took 6 and a half hours to complete! UGH. ONE boat got a decent start and hooked into some wind/current and pulled away from the other 3 boats in our class. They finished just under 6 hours; 4 min. before the time limit expired which meant it was a legal race for all boats in our class. At least the last 2 hours were good sailing.
