Re: Wild race on Saturday during November storm
We had a race like that a while back. Started out as a 35 mile beat, however, into a 35 knot easterly. It had been blowing like that all day, so the waves had built to about 4-6'. Ripped our main at the second batten from the luff to the leach, but it got us there and back, finishing second to a J/109. Couldn't make a movie since it starts after sundown. Finished before breakfast, though. Twelve boats started, three finished.
