Forshner Race #1

Sail #32: 02/09/12 - 2.1 nm

Strong winds on Saturday forced a rescheduling of the first rave in the Forshner Race Series to Sunday morning.  Unfortunately, there was little or no wind on Sunday morning, which usually spells disaster for us in a race.

However, we got off to a good start and decided to stay close to shore and take advantage of a minimal  breeze coming off the shore.  We were well off UD4, the first mark when the race captain announced that the race would be shortened to UD4 and back.  Fortunately we were able to work our way up and around the mark to claim third place overall and first in cruise.
