A handful of Lightnings and one hearty Buccaneer came out Sunday for what turned out to be a beautiful day of sailing. The forecast was for high winds and possible thunderstorms, but despite a few gusts early in the and some grey clouds it ended up being a wonderful day on the water. PRO Kyra Tallon and her crew got us 4 beautiful races in a steady southerly breeze. The wind filled in over the course of the day such that the gusts diminished and the overall velocity became more consistent in the 12-15 range. There were a few shifts on the day, notably a big lefty in race 3 that ran counter to the overall advantage one gained by sailing right (west) to find breeze and some shifts. It was a great day to work on boat balance, trim, and downwind angles in a bit of breeze (but not too much). Fun was had by all and we were back to the dock by 2:30 thanks to a high tide that allowed us to sail just outside the airport pier (though I did dig my centerboard into the mud a few times later in the day). Overall it was a great way to round out the Spring Series racing!
