Thursday Night Sail

23 April 2009
Raced again last night in the Davis Island Races. We had a very light crew of only 7, but all experienced. The winds were light at times and topping off around 10 knots at others. There was a lot of reaching and close hauled sailing, so we took advantage of the course to put time in the bank on our competition.

I worked as Jib trimmer, starting out on starboard side and then to port side after the spinnaker run. We came in first place and made it in just as the sun was setting. It was a really nice race. The crew works well together and adapts to what needs to be done.

I made plans with Jessie to go sailing on her boat this Saturday. According the websites, the winds are forecast to be real nice. Jessie told me that she had another picture of me that was taken on our Saturday race with Reggie. I'm kind of glad there are no plans to sail on Sunday. although that is always subject to change for the right opportunity, there are some things I need to do around the house.
