2015 District 8 Championship: Saturday
Arrived at Sayville Yacht Club Friday afternoon as a junior regatta was wrapping up with 150 sailors scattered all over the place. I got out to practice for a little over an hour in similar conditions to the first day of racing.
On Saturday the wind slowly built throughout the morning and afternoon with a nice sea breeze and mostly sunny skies. The course was a long one and something I hadn’t seen as much of yesterday was the seaweed that definitely slowed us down. And having sailed so much at FBYC I realize I had gotten used to the waves and was a little thrown by the more irregular pattern here. So it was a tough slog through 5 races today where I had some good moments and some bad ones. It was still fun and is a very competitive fleet and I’m sitting right at mid table.
Tomorrow a little lighter winds are expected and 3 more races are scheduled.
