It was a beautiful warm evening. With winds mostly out of the south made for some interesting racing. After rounding the buoys most fleets found themselves on a near beam reach. This caused an interesting split of boats flying spinnakers on a beam reach and others just keeping their Genoas up as they rounded the marks. Down the channel was also a near beam/broad reach and then down wind all the way to the finish. A gorgeous second to last race in the series. It’s too bad we had our head in the game. We could have had some beautiful pictures!
