It was my first big race and we were right in the thick of it with the big boys in the second start. What an adrenaline rush!
Unfortunately, I fell from the cabin top to the bottom rail during the heavier winds (30-35 knots) and hurt my back. Almost went overboard. Very scary. Good news is, it didn't really seize up until we got back Sunday night, so I was sore but able to contribute fully as a crew member (between puking sessions). It was cold, hard work, and tons of fun. Can't wait for next year.
Puking, cold, slow, and Fantastic!?!?! Clearly you were cut out for this!
