In the first race I had a good start at the boat, hit the shifts and just led the around the whole course to get a bullet. The second race was set a bit longer and I messed up the start and wound up behind most of the boats going out to the left. Halfway up the course I made my way to the right while all of the leaders went left, and I caught some good wind and shifts to the right to round just inside Brad Squires. Brad had a gear I didn’t have downwind and got ahead and led the rest of the way to the finish.
We were sent in as a storm approached and were in by 2pm.
I did two video experiments today. One was taking a bunch of time lapse pictures around the club of everyone launching and heading out to the course. The other experiment was mounting a video camera to the stern of the laser with an extension. It was a cool view, but was a little shaky. I’ll have to figure out how to stabilize it a little more.
