Yesterday was the first day of the VSS 2018-19 racing season, and it was a beautiful day for sailing. I take that as a harbinger of good things to come!
The weather was mostly clear and sunny with a nice easterly breeze of around 8 to 12 knots with some gusts in the lower and mid teens. Definitely JAPSDIP!
Today's distance race was a 9.1 nm pursuit counter clock triangle race. It seemed that the first mark Tom had moved somewhat to the NE .5 nm from the given course. This was corrected by the 1st boat to round Tom , was Opalina Lou Salhhany which helped the rest of the fleet to adjust to Toms .5 correction. The winds were 15 to 18 knots out of the east south east with some clouds and sun with a light chop. The final results were:
