2012 District 8 Championship: Sunday
We started with a 1 hour postponement on shore before the wind finally filled in for us to sail. From there we sailed 3 more races in 7-11 knots in very choppy conditions. I had some crummy starts and great speed upwind, but wasn’t always picking the shifts right. In all 3 races I was back in the lead pack usually with a few boats ahead of me. The racing was close and so were the points. There were about 5 of us going at it with any of us having a shot at 2nd place. In the end I lost the tiebreaker on the last race to Lindsay Hewett who sailed some great races today.
I had hoped for a little more boring of a ride home, but unfortunately just ahead of me on the Goethals bridge a car caught fire. I was trapped in traffic on the bridge for an hour and thus hit even more night construction on the ride back.
All in all it was another fun trip to Sayville. I enjoyed the racing and want to thank Ted Cremer and everyone else at Sayville Yacht Club for putting on a great regatta.
