Re: Distance Preps- Solomons Invitational.
Bump for results:
Last year: We retired due to not sailing fast enough to beat the breeze cut-off that typically occurs in the morning.
This year: We took 8th of 11, and even beat a boat that owes US time.
Nothing to scream about, but a large improvement. We did have a period of very, very light breeze where we put all of Auspicious Dave's training in to practice and it definitely paid off in the form of progress towards the finish line instead of parking or drifting.
