Nuvolari red hull and fleet of 6 meter boats race in Vancouver

Races at 6 M International Championship

Over 20 TWS and rough chop. A tough day on the water!

Start OK and up with first 8 boats till I slipped and tacked! 4 boats sail past!

The Spinnaker Guy ended up around rudder at bottom mark. No spinnaker set on second run, 4 more boats sail by! After finish we sail to RVYC and Martin dives in to retrieve Spinnaker Guy. Miss start by 2 min but sail well in the chop to pass 3 boats before first mark! Bloody frustrating as we are going good in the fresh conditions. (in the first 10 is possible)

Overall 18th after 6 races

Still 2nd in our Class

Two more races! My last 2 races!
