Race Preparation Step 4: Race 8

Another weather check. Seems like I might have been correct about the dying breeze. The new forecast shows a change from the previous:

North winds 10 knots or less becoming northeast 5 to 10 knots. Waves 2 feet or less.

Light and variable winds. Waves 1 foot or less.

So overall strategy will be play safe on the downwind legs and stay close to the line or mark. Play middle of course. That way if the breeze does die down we might be in a better position. On the upwind I think the strategy should be the it conservative and don't get too far from the middle of the course. WIll be checking bouy data and trends before I leave for the dock.
