Well and truly buried at the start of the 1st race of the day. We are 4th boat from the left and the top 3 boats are the first two and the 5th from the left. So it was the favorable end to be at but it does help if you're not buried. We kept out to the left hand side of the beat to get clear air and gradually worked our way up to 7th place.
Waiting for the start of the last race. By this time the wind is dropping and for the first time I'm racing the Albacore against other Albacores in less that a Force 4. It was a relief and a pleasure to discover that we go just as quick as the top boats with our best result of a 3rd to demonstrate.
