Racing! Two very long days, out on the water at 8.30 and not back till 5 with 4 races each day. We had a ‘cook out’ after the races yesterday and tonight is rum night! (not for us unfortunately). The wind was so light yesterday that between races people were swimming off their boats, it picked up in the afternoon though when the lake breeze came through, yes the lake breeze, and we had 2 fun races. Today the wind stayed around 12 knots swinging all over the place generating postponement after postponement. We really enjoyed the races but with us all being very competitive the atmosphere of the boat was sometimes.. tense. Overall the weather, wind and location kept spirits high and we all had a great time on both days.
Some events of the last 2 days:
The Best Gybe we’ve ever done followed by our worst!
The spinnaker halyard came off while the spinnaker was up on the downwind leg. This left Alex to climb the mast and retrieve it which the other boats were very impressed with.
Missing the practice race because we were getting bacon butte’s.
Me elbowing Livi in the face whilst hoisting the jib.
Great Expectations handing out a big can of whoop ass today!
Beating Team GB in the last race.
