any m24 match race results-commentary?
The racing was a lot of fun! The WMU team sailed solid and consistantly all day and won. Winds were flukey and shifty and watching them in the last two races from high up in the Lakeview room at MYC they sailed the shifts really well. The 2nd place boat had solid M24 sailors on it which gave them a speed edge at times but so did a lot of the other teams and that didn't necessarily save them. The Third Place team was two of my regular crew and another WMU sailor who have never sailed M24's or together before, and that may have been the most impressive result of all!
Team 1 from BD was cursed with bad steering and bad luck. Seemed to hit every hole, miss every shift, and in our last race a 180 degree wind shift as we hit the leward mark making both legs upwind. Really bad when you are already behind LOL! Congrats to all and thanks to the owners for allowing their boats to be used. What a GREAT event.
I am thinking we are getting enough J/35's @ MYC so now we could do this in the spring with the J/35's How fun would that be!
