Princess Sofia Trophy Day 2 & 3

Lack of Wifi and lots of waiting has made it difficult to post. We had a great day yesterday after waiting for five hours onshore before we went out at 5pm to have two races where we raced until 8pm. We had a fantastic start near the pin and led the race from there! Our second race had a little more drama, but after a while we managed a sixth. Today we had the early start time and with a short postponement, we left the beach with an offshore breeze. In our first race today we jumped the gun, but not by very much and had a tough race fighting back to fifth. Unfortunately we were U Flag penalty or as we call it the “P Flag of Death.”  We joke sometimes how we should say the “P Flag of Opportunity” instead. Oh well haha. The second race we couldn’t really piece together a good beat and struggled to get in the top pack.
