I know ya'll are just dying to see all of my unedited race video..
But here is an educational one.
Light air. 3-7mph (tops) of the the east. VERY shifty and oscillations that didn't seem persistent or time-able (at least to me). (maybe I should watch the clouds more) Yet I somehow managed to nail it in this race.
So I set up properly after checking out the line, it was marginally pin favored at the 5 minute mark. By the time the gun went off it was heavily pin favored.. So what is a guy going to do.. Darn right. Port start.. The 'safe' Starboard boats didn't have a chance thanks to a huge lull at about the minute mark.
So I take off in the lead. Then check out the GPS track. That was a header I should have tacked on for sure!
Not tacking put me squarely in the middle of the pack (but still ahead of Sohn
) So I had to nail the shifts the rest of the way around to claw my way back, and I did.. Finished 2nd!
