Good to see not an AFOC. My first time no wind. My second went in a race at the YC. Had trouble getting over the start line against the tide. My third time had a ship giving me 5 blasts (had already decided to give way to it). Fourth time another race and got on a long plane for a mile or two - impressed the bigger boats. A while before I won a race but 2 in a day wasn't bad and a few fish in between.
