CMRC May Grade 3 Regatta - Saturday Update

Report by Chris Nesbitt

Light conditions for day one of racing, little to no hiking. The key today was to keep the boat moving and stay in the pressure.

Team Nesbitt currently sits in 4th with a 4-way tie for 1st (all top 4 competitors went 6-2 today) after the completion of the first round- robin behind Guy Mossman, Jennifer Wilson and Don Wilson.

We were OCS in the race against D. Wilson, and got a penalty flag on us in the race against Jennifer Wilson after winning the start and leading the race for a lap and a half.

Tomorrow will see the top 8 race in an elimination series, first to two advance to the quarterfinals, top to from there go on to the finals.

We sail Steve Lowery who finished the round robin in 5th and won the coin toss. He will enter on starboard for the first head to head and we will be in boat 8 on port.

Forecast for tomorrow is more of the same, with potentially even lighter winds. -
