Last Day KWRW by Paul Cayard

Three races today in perfect Key West conditions-18-24 knots of wind and sunshine.
There was way too much action to go through it all. The first two races were great for us with a 3, 5 but the third one was bad.

The scores aren't out yet but I think Barking Mad and Mascalzone tied for first. The French were probably third. I think we may have slipped to 7th or even 8th today.

The amazing thing was watching Mascalzone come back through the fleet after being over early in 3 races. They are truly quick. The French were very impressive in their speed too and they have a brand new boat here so we are hoping for some of that with our new boat which will be ready for the next regatta in March.

We are pretty happy with our regatta. Just getting used to sailing together and sorting out the boat and sails. Being down here in Key West at this time of the year is a treat no matter where you finish. - Paul Cayard
