31: Day One Qualification Round
Rain all day and we didn't get out on the water until about 4:00. Race 1 we had a good start at the boat and were going well but to the wrong side. We rounded in the top ten. The run was good and we passed a few boats. We were forced to the wrong gate and went the wrong way on the beat again but were still around 10th. On the starboard layline we noticed the bridle shackle was coming apart so we quickly headed down wind but the mast dropped anyway. We got towed in and were done for the day. They ran 2 races so we are in a tough spot to make the Gold fleet.
