Another Wednesday Night
Wednesday Night Racing out of Wickford Harbor! I look forward to this gathering of friends, family, and sailors just about every week! Compared to the previous week of heavy fog, this evening proved to be gorgeous with a wonderfully golden sun and a light breeze. I was out sailing on Papa again with my parents and some friends. We didn't have the best start, but held as much of our position as we could for the first leg. Our downwind leg was terrific! We managed to pass two competitors and put a great amount of distance between ourselves and the back half of the fleet. Of course, rounding the leeward mark in fourth did not mean we would finish in fourth. Our poor and heavy one-sailed Nonsuch was no match for the lighter jibbed boats on the last leg, pushing us to finish in about 6th. Be sure to check out my previous Wednesday Night blog post for more reading!
As always, more photos can be seen on my website. If you're a participant, be sure to check out the Wed Night Racing 2012 Viewing Gallery for all the photos I have of you (purchasing options available)!
