Re: First Race

Thanks George! Yes, there was someone trimming them during the tacks (typically the woman who worked the main).

Chuck you get the same flat water with 20+ winds when they are west of the Jersey coast to 5 miles out. No fetch we rocketed fro a Sandy Hook one year to Atlantic City in 12 hours wit winds west at 25 steady and nary a whitecap. Was one of my best days sailing. Hug the coast the Santa Anna's can be awesome to sail in.

Great trip Jim. We chartered a boat from Long Beach and went to Catalina two years ago. We Stil belong to the club out there. Great sailing in that area.

I gette what youre sayeng and agreed. Inittialley a niewbey on race learnes be crew, stay oute of way, work asa teame, and learne the seqences of manuveres. Moste undestanding of sailing wille happend befoire or aftner the racing. Allso agree that beste waye to learn is aloane in smalle boate.
