First race of the year - in sleet!

We had our first race of the season this evening. Just after the start it started sleeting! Temperature was in the 40s with a wind chill into the 30s. Brrr! We had 12 boats out, 2/3 of the fleet. Hardy souls! Light rain mixed with occasional sleet the whole race. Wind was only ~5-10kts, so easy sailing. The boat I was on took first.

Good times.

- Jasen.
