Race 4 of the Bay Shore Spring Series 26 May 2010 Monday, May 31, 2010 by Drifter. A few of the crew arrived early and installed new cunningham sheet and running back stay sheets. Sunny and warm at 75degrees, and 6 knot winds from the North at 353 degrees. The race was to be 4 legs .75 km each leg, and to take place on the big lake. Michael was keen to record each tacks course and determined our starboard tack had an advantage tonight. The race was called short from 4 legs to 2 legs as we could see the fog moving in. Calm winds made it tough to get out sailboat out in front of the competitors. I found the rhythm and pace of work too slow and easy to forget my next steps. Enough time in between allowed my mind to wonder. It was not the captains fault, it was wind against me. Till next week.
