8:What a day. It was about 80 deg with wind. Dave Peck showed up and we had nice duels all afternoon. Race 1 had wind out of the North, puffy and shifty. Dave got a better start and got to the first mark well ahead. He got stuck in a few holes on the reaches and I closed the gap. After a last beat with lots of tacks I just got around him at the finish. Race 2 played out the same way but this time Dave held me off on the last beat. In race 3 Dave won the start but I got a little more wind to the right and rounded in first. He gained a bit when the wind shifted 180 deg as the seabreeze filled in but I held him off by a boat length.
Race 4 had nice wind out of the south. We rounded the windward mark overlapped with Dave ahead but I got inside at the jibe mark and won the race. Race 5 we were both over early and Doug took the win. I won for the day with Dave in second and Doug in third.
