Whelp, bad news.. I left my goPro in my car on Saturday, and it was the day to get the most action on camera.  Sorry Brig!  


Here is my raceQs for the day




I'll pieced it up into individual races.. though, not sure it matters much since nobody else turned it on.  Boooo.


For race 4, I had an average speed of 7.7 and top speed of 14.6, though I see bursts of 17 in the downwind leg.

If I had a tracking app it would have been spinning in circles until it died a watery death.



The IC humbled me once again. Trying to deal with the shift and changes in velocity

Dang, sorry to hear that Brig.


Okay, so one Weta is out and we're down to four boats.  Crump and duwke, are you okay racing OD as long as we start with Portsmouth?  Or do you want to stay in Portsmouth?  Fleeting is asking me.  Doesn't matter to Russ or me, but we're not Circuit.


WRT courses, I like the mix of W/L and modified Olympic/Gold Cup.  Evens out a lot of boats.  And Portsmouth ratings are based on a mix of triangles and W/Ls, IIRC. 


Not sure who the PRO and RC are for us.  Each PRO is very experienced but we're bringing in new blood on RCs and chase boats, so there's going to be a mix.  I learned a lot doing it last summer but I still suck.  So cut them some slack if they're not yet up to previous years' standards, please.

More beer mugs that way and still get the TCC boats scored. They need to keep the same start with the rest of the fleet.

Harpoonette and I will be foregoing the camping this year.   I have family coming in from Massachusetts and we are getting together Saturday night in Austin.  Harpoonette and I will be down Friday evening to rig and register. We will probably get a room at Maricopa for Friday night.
