13: Hyannis Regatta
Still learning. Our light and medium air sailing has improved enough to be winning Hyannis after two days in this condition. Unfortunately we are a bit off the pace in the heavy stuff. We got better throughout the day on Sunday. Found we were too slow to add diamond tension. That combined with some navigational errors that   destroyed our first two races on Sunday dropped us to second AGAIN. Still we beat some good teams so we are happy with that.

10: Newport Regatta
We had an up and down weekend, deadly slow at times. We did work some speed issues out particularly upwind in a bit of breeze (depowering earlier) and in the medium stuff (holding height better through the lulls).
We won four of 10 races so we are getting more able to take some wins from Tripp and Mike but the rest of the fleet is getting closer at the same time.

8: ACWS Demonstration Event
We spent the weekend racing F18's on the AC45 course in Newport before they raced in the afternoons. It was a great chance to show off our class in front of a few thousand sailors.
