Round the Buoys club racing last night, sunny, 23C, NW wind 6 knots gusting 12.

Late for the first race, and found ourselves creeping up on the fleet.
We felt like the Chile Soccer Team at the World Cup.

Good start in the 2nd race, and beat one T and the brand new NACRA.
3rd race we beat two T's and the NACRA. Beers are on me!

The best part was skipper and crew working well together and doing everything 'right'
(other than the late start). I think we'll kill the others on handicap.

BTW, our fleet now sails A-C-A-C courses, no more gybe mark, although we use it for getting best speed.
The Dinghy's use the gybe mark.

Good winds to all.
