Short courses really favor smaller boats.Nice,
The total elapsed times for the regatta with one drop shows the Farrier, Carbon Credits to be approximately 10 % faster than the much larger Grainger, Venom.
In the Newport Unlimited on my forty footer the only time we were able to correct in front of the hot Farriers was when I had Brian Thompson and Lars Christianson off Steve Fossetts Lakota crewing for a change of pace - never saw the chute go up and down that quick before - averaging ten windward/leeward does the trick!
Offshore, shorthanded with my lesser skills we run away from those guy’s.
It takes so much more time to change gears with bigger sails.
So what happened in the Adelaide to Port Lincoln? Weather conditions?
