Pre-race Conditions

It's Wednesday and time for another race. I have just re-arranged crew assignments and eliminated one crew position. We are now sailing with a crew of 4. My hope is that with the re-assingments and weight reduction we can eek out a bit more speed. The forecast:

This Afternoon
Northwest winds 5 to 15 knots diminishing to 10 knots or less. Waves around 2 feet.

Northeast winds 10 knots or less becoming east and increasing to 5 to 15 knots. Waves 2 feet or less building to 2 to 3 feet.

There was a race similar to this a few weeks ago. Think the race committee set a triangle course. It was a good race. I will be posting previous races notes in pdf format for viewing while I get everything set up for the blog.
