Sorry about the loss of your rig Fiasco 1.
Props to the manner you and crew responded to an increasing list of immediate concerns.
Top it off with showing up at the next day's awards ceremony to quell any rumours by doling out the unvarnished truth.
Awesome regatta. All locations and events ran extremely smooth.
Big shout out to organizers Jeff and Sylvia.
Thanks also to Drew and Chris in the North Sails support Van, you guys did great work under tight deadlines. You helped in smoothing out a bad sail delivery mishap.
Kiva had a great regatta in division 2. Prime conditions for a Finngulf 41. We loved the competition that evolved with Different Drummer. Not really even knowing them as competition at Port Hardy to breaking with the fleet on the last leg through Active Pass so we could settle our differences in a 12 hour match race. The two boats perform identically, so it made for exciting and satisfying racing. Either that or we got confused on the old tactics versus strategy calculation!
Our valiant skipper survived a breach of v berth sanctity when he was ryepooned in Winter Harbour. The rest of the crew were all sleeping restfully aboard during this brazen act.
Special thanks to Julien for allowing the "full show" aboard Kiva for another two week epic racing odyssey!
I am done for at least a week!
