Move the sails back

I work out the butterflies in my stomach (yes, I still get them) by making the boat ready. Here we move the sails to the middle of the boat; better for speed.

Reaching with the kite

The first race we sailed fast. But we were second.

Now the Symmetrical

The local yacht club committee named this sail, the whomper. Or was it the white one?

In the next race we get serious. We're leading.

Circling Before the Start of Race Four

It comes down to race four, and we circle each other warily.

Chasing the Competiton

Olas got by us, but with two legs to go we're just behind by 2 minutes and thirty seconds and gaining. They owe us 5 minutes on this course.



So now there is a gap in the photos. The photo boat broke down, so the excitement of the last beat and the final run must be described by words, not pictures. But I have them in my head. You can read the story.

Back at the dock we dry things out.
