First off was Fall Series racing. That was a lot of fun, thanks to a great bunch coming aboard as crew. We had some good results in the Spring in spite of some of my tactical choices, and began the series with a couple great starts. The cutlass bearing told me it was time to replace part way through the PR Classic, so missed a great second day of that.
Mid November had me crewing on Prime again for 'Round the County', a two day race around San Juan County. We made good choices on the first day, sailed well, and were rewarded by coming out of Day 1 in 2nd. Unfortunately the same couldn't be said for Day 2. End result was mid-pack in our Div., but always a good race to do and Prime does it up great.
The worst part of the past 3 months has been the abrupt change to wet, yucky weather. I've yet to get the sails off for inspection and storage, and want to do a little prep for the resumption of racing Feb. 1. I'm starting to think the boat will not be getting decorated this year :^( . But in spite of these trivial matters –it's been a great year of boating once again. We're so fortunate to be in a position to enjoy the beauty of the PNW. All in all, I'll definitely take it. More photos here.
