First off, we want to wish Anneloes, one of our dutch 470 friends, a happy birthday! This morning we brought her a cake that we baked last night and got to sing to her before sailing today which was a great way to start our day. As for the sailing, today’s conditions were extremely similar to yesterday, same direction, light air and unstable breeze. We attempted to sail less conservatively and play something bigger on the race course. A lot of teams were inconsistent today and we managed two decent races which helped move us up in the results. Today didn’t feel that great racing wise as we had trouble cracking into the top five. The opportunity was there, but we were late making some tactical decisions which hurt us. Tomorrow our start time is 1pm with three races scheduled.
We would like to thank the sponsors and supporters of the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider especially our title sponsor Sperry Top-Sider.
