Donzo WNR - 07/27/16

Wind: SSW at 6 to 12, average 9 kts
Temp: 78 F, Baro: 29.88”
Current: last of flood, ebb North Hill 17:35
Course: sf-N-I-s/f-N-s/f, Race Length: 6.2 nm
Crew: Brian, Adam, Josh & RW

I had hoped to start near the RC, yet due to a last minute sheet issue we ended up nearer the pin, trailing Jolly Mon & Zallee.  Jolly Mon had a problem with Liquid Foundation which we were able to able to avoid by falling off some directly after the start.

I miss-calculated the current due to a bad data input to our spreadsheet. Had we anticipated the earlier ebb we may have tucked in on the northeast side of North Dumpling on the first leg as we did on the second upwind. 

We had a good rounding and set at North Hill and chose to continue with the spinnaker following the jibe at Intrepid. Some boats were not able to do so.  Following a timely douse, we continued on port then a series of tacks to work up the northeast of North Dumpling, then across the channel towards South Dumpling for a close port/starboard encounter with Ticker.  After tacking to starboard along the west shore of South Dumpling, we skipped over a couple rocks inside the can prior to tacking for the N2.

Following a good set of the chute, we had a good run down to the finish.

Donzo WNR - 07/13/16

Wind: SW at 4 to 10, average 6 kts
Temp: 72 F, Baro: 30.04”
Current: last of flood, ebb North Hill 18:35
Course: sf-N-I-s/f-N-s/f, Race Length: 6.7 nm
Crew: Brian, Adam, Dan & RW

The RC chose a long course this evening, upwind for a port rounding of the North Hill bell, then a spinnaker reach for  a jibe at Intrepid to the s/f then up to North Hill & back. We were the most windward boat at the start near the RC, yet after a couple minutes were forced to tack by Jolly Mon on our lee.  After a couple minutes we were back on starboard towards the channel between the Dumplings.  We had a good rounding and set for the reach to Intrepid where Brian lowered the pole for the tighter reach to the leeward mark.
On the second upwind we chose to go west of North Dumpling as the wind began to die as did our position in the fleet.

We have only a recording of the first leg as the power was accidently turned off a following the first rounding of North Hill.
