I thought I’d drop you a line and let you know how the new sails have been working. Two weeks ago we took the boat to Cleveland Race week.
In PHRF E we scored 5 firsts & were able to “sail off” the course & load the boat on the trailer without sailing the last race. Very fun!
They do not score overalls because they split the racers onto two courses & even change mark locations between fleets on the windward/leeward courses. But, we could figure out a couple of times where we had a 2,3, and 5 in overalls. Not bad in a group of 50 boats.
The sails made a big difference in our results as I expected they would.
Not to jinx anything, but we’ve had 7 bullets in the last 7 races.
We’re going fast and having fun.
