We had really nice weather conditions yesterday. A lot of our regularly racers were caught in RL yesterday and so only Sanja and Ella joined me on our reversed courses 4 and 3 with wind from North East with 25knots.
Sanja and Ella started awesome in both races and i had disaster starts in both races. Thats why i only have one race picture. I was just too far away to have them on my screen.
In the first race Sanja had Ella in her neck until the third buoy CN. On the upwind leg to buoy CN Sanja could sail away a little more of Ella and saved her lead until the finish line. I could only enjoy my popcorn and watch the two.
In the second race i saw the two only when they came already back from a turn and i was still trying to go there and their dots on mini map. Ella chased Sanja after the start until buoy CN and on the leg to buoy OW she could pass her.
Ella tacked after buoy IS earlier than Sanja for the upwind leg to buoy IN and had after the next tack to buoy IN a lot more speed. It looked first as if Sanja reached buoy IN first, but with already more speed Ella passed Sanja again at buoy IN.
Now Sanja was chasing Ella until buoy CS. There Sanja tacked earlier to the North for the upwind leg to buoy CN than Ella and passed Ella at buoy CN with the same trick Ella used before at buoy IN.
It looked now as if Sanja had a little but safe lead to finish the race first, but Ella switched on her turbo on the finishing leg and both crossed the line with the same time and only the line knows with how much Sanja won this exciting duel between the two.
Congrats to Sanja for two close wins.
