Sunday Race at DIYC

20 April 2009
Sunday April 19, 2009

I met up with Bill from S/V Rocket on Sunday for the Sunday Race series that happens at DIYC. He contacted me based on a conversation with Dave and Sandy. He asked me to come crew on his boat for a practice run this Sunday, in preparation for a regatta that is happening on May 2. Like most sailors one meets, everyone on his crew was real nice. I worked as port side jib trimmer and controlled the guy for the spinnaker run.

It was a great sail with mild but consistent winds. We performed several tacks to adjust out point of sail to the course. All in all it was a good experience and they welcomed me back for the upcoming race on May 2. I think I am really going to like racing with this group, especially if there is always work for me to do such as jib trimming.
