If boats are taking their mid week races too seriously, they need to race more on weekends!

First race last week was called due to weather. Last nights race went on as planned and was awesome! I got to do a little bit of everything....trimming sails, hiking out, hauling lines, and even steering back to the marina.

I think I'm hooked......

Excellent! Glad you had a good time out.

Now that you're an expert on "first time racing", you should post some of the tips you learned from your first time out. It may help someone with a similar question. Tell us more about your experience.
