Second Day of GYC Regatta
The second day was even better for us. We sailed very well and even more consistently. The breeze was very pleasant, blowing offshore at 10 knots and was quite shifty. We found a way to get in sync with the shifts and sailed well enough to hold a lead each of the last three races, making them especially painful 3rd's. The last race we were able to get the job done despite the failure of my trapeze, resulting in a swim! We found a nice lefty and were able to find our way across the fleet. Taylor kept it too tight for my comfort downwind! We finished the day 2 2 3 3 1 and ended the regatta 3rd, just five points out of second!
