SHYC - Lobell

Crew: Dan, Seth & RW
Course: 1.42 nm at 170, 3 laps. Lords C7 windward mark, Distance: 8.36nm
Current: ebbing; Flood began 1255 at Napatree
Wind: SE 5 to 16, avg 10.5 kts; 100 to 210 degrees
Weather: 75 F, DP 71, Baro 29.92, cloudy

·     I was discombobulated with the current and remained on starboard following the start (the unfavored tack) for what I thought was current relief. The ebb would not begin for another two hours or more.

The remainder of the race was smooth; good boat handling by Dan & Seth.

Crossing line (in 3 kts of wind) next to the RC boat at the gun uncontested, with most of the class down near the pin, I later realized (if not less current there) their course to windward took them into the shelter of the breakwater sooner than ours.    We were neck and neck with Salud to the breakwater, where they abeam our windward pulled ahead.
