2015 FBYC Laser Summer Regatta

20150626-014

We had a shifty day of racing at Fishing Bay Yacht Club for the Laser Summer Regatta.  With light winds out of the south and a sea breeze trying to come in and take it a little more east there were sometimes swings of up to 50-70 degrees – yet it would keep stabilizing around 170. We had a 10 boat line and a rather ‘competitive’ length line for that number of boats.

I had about 1 good start in 5 races and in the others I was either behind boats, couldn’t accelerate, over early or fouling people and having to stop and turn before I sailed the course.  That being said – picking the shifts and staying in pressure was key and with the shifts as big as they were – passing lanes were plenty. It was fun racing with Steve, Brad, Alain, Mike and everyone else who came out.  Thanks Mark Stephens and crew for doing RC and Steve Q for the great social following racing.
