What was supposed to be a three lap windward/leeward course, ended up being a reach-fest, with half the race a close-reach (occassionallly a beat) into a knot and a half current. We would have faired better having a reaching spinnaker on the downwinds, as the angle was a bit tight for our AP, though it would not have made a difference as too much was lost bucking the current on the upwinds, with no opportunity for avoidance.

6th place (last)
