Bay Shore Race 3 May 19 2010 - Light Winds
Race 3 for 18 May 2010

Noth West winds at 7 knots made for an easy sale at 65 degrees temperature. Before the start, the portside mid-mast back stay controller cable came out, same as race 1. Up went Stevo to fix it on the bolson gear. No accidents.

We started race within seconds of the start. We ran the old jib #1 which reminded me of the Black Perl?s sails, a bit darkened. This 2 leg race started on starboard tack, and top speed of 2 knots. We tacked to portside and found us hitting 4 knots. This was repeated on each tack. Maybe there was a current?

Our spinnaker produced 4.5 knots.

No issues to report, and we were not stretching our skills because of the minimal winds. Anyone with camera would have had been rewarded with great sunset pictures.
