43: Laser Frosbiting in Essex started today. We were blown out last week.
The wind wa out of the NW at 10 to 15 with less than normal current. I had a good day winning a few races. I havn’t sailed a hiking boat since the Spring so my legs are a little sore. Fortunately the wind died a bit for the last few races.

42: Sharkey’s Cup:
Saturday started off with light air out of the south but was building all day. We had four races and the last 2 and a half were in about 15+ knots. Finally we had some good double trapping and de-powering. 2o boats showed up with some great competition. We had two 3’s a first and a 7th for the day to stand in second behind Mark and Sandra counting three firsts and an OCS.
Sunday started off light and built a bit for some on and off double trapeezing. We had three races. Our first race we had a great start but went to the wrong side and had a terrible result. Race two we had a terrible start and messed up again. Finally in the third race we got a good start at the pin and managed to win the race.
Mark and Sandra won the regatta, and high points for the season. We finished second winning a tiebreaker with Geoff and Krista.
