I was back sailing again yesterday after having to take Friday off due to a small injury. But it was another great day on the water for Team GAC Pindar as we moved up the leaderboard back onto the podium with one more day of racing left.
The morning's session was again held for corporate sailing as the wind slowly built for the races starting at 2pm. By the start, the wind was around 12-15kt gusting a little higher. We again had eight races to add to the score board. Our worst race being a 6th coming after an OCS. Otherwise our scores ranged between a 2-5. Andrew Walsh, our skipper, did a great job of getting us off the startline which allowed us to round the first mark in the top four or five with an opportunity to pass a boat or two from there. The racing again was close and wild just as expected with gusts dropping down onto the course.
Today is the last day of racing with the winds forecast to be a little lighter in general. The course is similar everyday, a reaching start from down by the city, then looping back a little farther out. The racing will be about finding the wind and connecting it all around the race course.
