Santander Test Event Day 4

Tough day tactically on a different course area.  During the ISAF Worlds, the fleets switch course areas every day which is unlike most regattas we sail. Usually, one course area is assigned to a particular fleet for the entire 5-day event, with the medal race being on a race area closer to shore.  Having different course areas is an awesome challenge as the days are completely different.  Today, we were postponed on shore for about two hours before the AP flag went down.  We had much better breeze than was forecasted topping off around 6 knots.  Again, we saw some swell and fairly inconsistent pressure which made the racing super close.  The first race, we were slow to pick up on the big picture conditions and what was working tactically.  We made some big improvements during the second race implementing some of the things we thought worked for the top teams and managed a 4th!  Tomorrow, we have three races scheduled with a start time of 13:10. We’re hoping to finish this regatta strong and keep making progress tactically and with our technique in the waves.
