Spent the weekend racing a few other F18s (6) - once again - light air for most of the weekend - very slow - I believe I had to much pre-bend, too much rack and the rig too tight. Forecast was 10-15 Sat and then 20-30 Sun. Wind did not happen. I backed off the Pre-bend and it made a small diff. But the Narcas and Capricons we way faster in less than 8 knts
Sunday last race - we got 8-12knts, the boat just came alive and left the Nacras and Capricorns for dead, could not believe the difference, it was like a switch was thrown.
We are putting together a F18 circuit to get more practise and training opportunities - we hope to get up to 15 F18 racing regularly.
