How Far We've Come

This clip was taken on the July 13th race by one of the crew. It was the second upwind leg on the course. Winds were gusty about 15 kts gusting to 20 kts. This was our first official race. You can see the fleet in the background. We were well behind the pack at this point but still managed to grab a 6th place. Not bad for first attempt. If you look at the race notes and compare with the current format race notes you will see that the mark placement differs. It wasn't until I plotted the actual course and mark bearings that I realized I had them wrong. The overall structure of the race is correct. I will eventually re-create this race with the current template for accuracy.
