Crew is Ready
Start, Day 1
Day one was a windward/leeward course and we pushed hard. It was also the last day ever for this mainsail. Ten minutes after the race it disintegrated. Not repairable. The new main is not here yet so we shifted to the Dacron main for the rest of the regatta. Would it have made a difference to have the new main? We'll never know

Approaching the First Mark
Day 2, From Leeward
In this photo we have the Dacron main and the used genoa from Minney's.
Working the Beach
We sailed this leg for all we were worth; in close, tacking around the rocks, coasting through the lulls, tracking every shift, and it worked: we made huge gains and passed three boats.
We changed to the S2 kite
The trophy went to Gordon, our new bowman.
