Rubbernecking

2014 QCYC Series 3, Race 2

Astra and Alycia joined us and the Wednesday wind was finally coming out of a direction other than north.  We loved racing a windward-leeward course, and didn’t mind that Troubador took the week off.  We got the win, but not without being constantly pressured by Strange Device.

Playing Catchup

It’s been a busy few weeks with a *lot* of video to edit…  Several races and a long-weekend cruise from Toronto to Niagara-on-the-Lake backlogged my video editing and the trickle-down effect is that the blog hasn’t been updated in weeks.  Here are links to all the videos which I finally caught up with as of late last night:

Tickler Play

2014 QCYC Series 2, Race 3

Perry got a workout this week, constantly making adjustments to the sail trim (aka: “Playing the Ticklers”).  We sailed a great race, finishing 5 minutes ahead of the next boat behind us, but nobody can keep up with Dan and Jess on Troubador…. they were 4 minutes ahead of us.  They’re putting the pressure on the raise the bar, that’s for sure :)

Sailboats Collide!

2014 QCYC Series 2, Race 2

Oh what a night for the new rear-facing cam to make its debut!  Perry finally got to finish a race this year.  The conditions were perfect for a great night of sailing…. oh, and we did get hit from behind.

We’re in a new PHRF split for series 2, and the obvious boat to beat is Dan and Jess in Troubador.  They got us by over a minute, but we’ll take our strong second place finish.
