Forshner Race #2

Sail #33: 02/09/12 - 11.1 nm

We had a quick turn around for Race #2.  Fortunately the winds improved from the morning and so we had a lengthened course out to the Malagash pin marker and back.

We did well on the windward leg, as always, but struggled with the downwind leg.  Some of the other boats opted to take a reach and minimize the run portion of the leg, which proved to be the best course.  However we still managed to finish 6th overall and 2nd in cruise.

Our overall performance was good enough for 5th overall in the club championship (our best finish to date) and first in the cruise class.

Another successful racing season for exploits and her crew!
