    We were pretty happy with inside the top ten , for the pursuit race... We were under hull speed all the way to Harding rock.. And it was light for us on the way back to the circle.... We was waterlined :-)

    All in all, a very nice day.

      Interclub #1

      I answered the e-mail for crew needed on a Multi 23 for the Interclub #1. After a few communications we were set to race on Saturday with Greg and Travis on “FLASH”. We showed up early to find the boat and get our gear ready. Once we got to the marina it took a while to find the boat and we even ran into Rafi our Hobie buddy getting his boat ready. He offered to take Daisy with him on his boat but we still had to find our ride. We found the slip and finally started to get things in order.
      We get the jib on and furled and new spin sheets ready and trimmed. We checked to get all the water out of the hulls and then got dressed out to sail. Rafi came by and offered to have Daisy sail with them but as the weather could build we decided to have an extra set of hands on deck and sail with 4 people. Greg, Daisy, Travis, and I let the air out of the hoist and motored out of the harbor. We set the main and began to make our way to the start in a light wind. We got to the start area and secured the motor and checked in with the race committee.
      We waited for the “D“start and were off in the light noon wind trying to make ground against a heavy flood tide. The small sail plan and short water line kept us from making a lot of ground on the larger F-27s and 31s. The fact that centerboard flap door wouldn’t close didn’t help. We basically had a speed break on the whole time the board was down. We had lost too many positions as the wind began to build and we started to get back some space. We were still deep in the fleet by the windward mark and then as we turned the corner we fouled the kite and lost time getting it set.
      Once the kite was up and full we began to make up ground as the Multi 23 really fly’s downwind. We had picked up all the fleet and were first to the mark on the downwind leg. Upwind we had the same issues and dropped a few more positions back upwind. On the reach legs we picked up most of the positions back. We turned downwind and with speeds turning up to 19 knots we were first at the last downwind. We managed to hold the position and were first to finish just edging out a couple F-27’s. While we dropped down to 3rd on corrected time we did ok for our first time racing with a new skipper. Thanks to Greg and Travis for the time on the water and a great day.
      After sailing we went and hung out with a few Bama members at Quinn’s lighthouse. We had a nice dinner and made some new friends. Thanks to everyone for making this a nice weekend.
