Shields races – May 11th, 2019

This week Riz came, making 4 of us racing and Sunday came to take photos.

I tried a non-conventional wind, NW instead of the usual N wind, this made things easier, especially 1st one (maybe next week I’ll try another, like NE, just to add variety)

First course was 2 laps of C3. I wasn’t paying attention when tacking and made contact with Paul. After my penalty I fell to 3rd place with no chance to recover but Paul made a great race taking 1st place from Moon.

    LOL OMG! 😮
    Somebody please tell Rizler that in such short races the start becomes kinda critical for the whole race. Often on those inshore courses whoever starts first also crosses the finish line first.

    And … whoa! Did Sunny contaminate the water in Triumphal lagoon with a whole barrel of Prussian Blue ink? :/
