30: Buzzards Bay Regatta

Three races on Friday with Jonathan and four with Colin on Saturday. No racing on Sunday due to high winds. Friday started with a drifter that most of the fleet missed because they couldn't get out to the course on time. After a long postponement we had two good races in a moderate sea-breeze. Saturday had nice wind at about 18 knots and good sized waves.

28: Hyannis Regatta
Finally sailing with Jonathan. We had a nice warm Northerly breeze on Friday and Saturday then good sea-breeze conditions on Sunday after a long on-shore postponement. There was barely a wind shift to be had all weekend so it was boat speed conditions. It's safe to say we were the second fastest boat in the fleet of 24. We finished 2nd in all ten races. Tripp and Mike managed a 1st in nine of ten races. We could get close to them if it was windy enough but they dominated in the powered up conditions. We'll try again this weekend at BBR.
