Today's DBSC Spring Chicken race was a light wind affair with big wind shifts, making it challenging for both the competitors and race officer Henry Leonard's team. The triangular course was eventually shortened after the fifth leg. Nice timing given that the rain had just arrived!
Onboard "YoYo" we had a useful practice session with sister ship "Hot Cookie" prior to racing. "Hot Cookie", with FF guru Alan Green helming, NS colleague Shane Hughes trimming plus noted tactician Marty O'Leary aboard eventually won the "battle of the sisterships" beating us on the water by 12 lengths or so.
The J97 "Windjammer" had a stellar day, beating us both on the water as did the J112 "Jib 'n Tonic". We await the "FECHO" results with bated breath!
