    I defer to anyone sailing on the water for an explanation of results. F-22 = Short-rig, non "R" version, Screecher/Gnkr-Only, Non-Spinnaker configuration. F-22 prelim OMR TCF non.Spin ≈ F-24 Mk II OD at 1,042 kg 2,297 lb ? The more time boats were on the course the worse the Ebb tide by the Vallejo YC (see Napa River reference above) and the approach to Carquinez Straits. A video of Mama Tried will show below below (with luck it will work). The monohull in the background is pushed down stream from the Napa River outflow and Ebb tide. The Corsair 28R in another video clip appears to barely make ground against the outflow. Benicia, Carquinez Strait, California 38.0433° N, 122.1300° W 2018-04-28 Sat 1:45 PM PDT 4.5 feet High Tide 2018-04-28 Sat 7:35 PM PDT 0.6 feet Low Tide The California Central Valley empties out through the Carquinez Strait, so tide matters(?). It was possibly less wind later in the afternoon, just looking.
