4: Light and rainy in Essex this Sunday. We had long slogs going down wind against the current. I think Dave won the day on a tiebreaker with me in second.

The 16’s out of the garage and all glued up. The F18 trailer is in the back and ready to go. I got the box bolted down today.

3: Winds started out light then at ten knots from the south. Half way through the first race it switched to the west and got real shifty. Everyone was up and down today. I only won one race today but managed to squeak out ahead of Hotch and T. Lee who tied for the day just two points behind after five races.

Liza and I just glued the 16. Everything fit together nicely. Diagonals, bow to floor and stern to floor are all even. All that's left is for the glue to dry and then the tricky move getting out of the garage.

2: I finally got a reprieve from school work and was able to make it out sailing again. What a fantastic day. It was about 60 degrees out and the wind came in nicely at about ten knots. With all the rain the current was fierce and going up wind. Basically we were sailing down wind about 90% of the time today. I had a good day with good starts and good speed to win the day. Hotchkiss had a new sail (finally) and was right in there all day for a second overall. Dave was third. 17 boats on the line today.
