Yes, it may seem as if I've disappeared from the face of the earth, but really, I haven't. I have some stuff to say about last weekend's racing, and some other observations about the universe. The problem lately has been a lack of convergence between time to write and reliability of online connection.
Capsule of last weekend's racing: good wind Saturday, lousy wind early Sunday, changing to way lots of wind later in the day.
We did OK in the medium air, lousy in the light air, well in the heavier conditions. Zorro also did lousy in the light air, but very well in medium and heavy. Sutherland did well in light, OK in medium, quit in heavy. Applegal didn't show up. End result for the Etchells Fleet 31 Championship: Zorro first, Sutherland second, us third.
Now we're back up at Heron, working on generating a real racing schedule for the first time in four years. This weekend, it's the Memorial Weekend Fun Race. More on that, and our trophies, in an upcoming post.
