I’ve updated the 2013 Schedule and Results page (click on the tab above).  Unfortunately I have not been keeping up the commentaries, but you can check the brief summaries on the sked page.

However, I should mention last Wednesday’s race.  It was the second race in the Hertel and Brown Series.

It was a beautiful night for sailing.  Breeze 10-12, a nice short triangle for our fleet, and our complete and full crew.  We had a good start, stayed in clear air and were second around the upwind mark in our fleet.  After that we sailed two reaching legs well, and were able to hold off the rest of the fleet.  Three boats finished ahead of us, but they all owed us enough time that we finished 1st by 4 seconds!  A very satisfying night, as you might guess.  We took a 3rd in the first race of this series, so we need to finish well in the next race to get a series flag.

Thanks to our full crew:  Judy, Mark, Andy, Rosemary, Kim.
