Today was a good case of “look at the forecast and show up anyways”. The forecast this morning was rough. Zero at noon and building to 4 at 1. When I showed up at the marina I had little intention of racing. John, Lou, and Lars decided to postpone at 12 for 30 minutes before making a call and John went out on the river to see what was happening. At 12:30 the wind had filled in a little and we decided to try and race.
The RC was able to get 5 races in. With light wind and an outgoing current, I expected more general recalls but we only had one. The first two races were very short (12 minutes) with a short line. The current was strongest for those two so I think starting at the pin and getting out into the current for the upwinds was important. I did not do this the first race and my scores show it haha. After the second race, RC lengthened the course and the start line. The longer line was a little boat favored and starting at the boat gave a little advantage as the current slacked.
