The 2nd day of the Laser Atlantic Coast Championship started out early and started with no wind. We had a 0930 first warning and they sent us out – towed most of us out to where we sat for 2 hours. By 11 the wind started coming in from the south and built from there. The Standard rigs got 3 more races in, 2 for the other fleets. By the 3rd race we had solid hiking conditions.
I had a tough day. I didn’t start well and the short first beat meant everyone went around the first 3 legs in a clump. The 2nd beat was always where I made my gains picking out the shifts upwind and picking off 10+ boats to get me back closer to the middle of the fleet. Thanks again to Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club for putting on a good regatta and I had a great time meeting new people and seeing friends.
