Day #2 (race 3) - Report by CinqueCinque (SUI 227)
Boots or shoes? Do you think we will be wet today?
So long story short, weather was definitely wet and windy :)
After a first general recall, the race committee launched a race under black flag. A massive right shift during the first upwind leg let a big part of the fleet to be over-layline. So full speed to the first mark, then pushy first downwind leg with a uncertain goal, leading to drop the spinnaker and point high to the mark.
Second windward leg and then really pushy downwind leg, with only a few of the competitors keeping the spinnaker up (us). Last upwind leg, wet, wet, wet and wiiiindy, and back home after this cool race.
A very good one for our crew, good speed, good feeling!!
And cherry on the cake, the after race " Breton buffet" party, organized by the Yacht Club Benodet, was really amazing, with specialties from Brittany, fresh beer and cider, shrimps fresh from the Guilvinec fished this afternoon, and a workshop to learn, make and eat crêpes!
