Ebb- 1138 Race Point, 1108 Napatree, factor 2.0f
Wind: SW / S 4 to 8 kts
Clear, Hazy, 85
Flood: Race Point 1140

We got a good start for the beat to Race Point, current not a great factor.  We sailed out past NH a good distance prior to tacking for the point.
Set the spinnaker at Race Point and hugged the shore down the backside.  I lost count of the jibes for current avoidance as Dennis did a great job with the pole. We were pushing our luck a few times, and got close to some swimmers along Isabella Beach.
Beat and reach to the finish. Elapsed Time: 373 minutes
3rd / 8 in class.  Our first RI 'Round Island' Race with a spinnaker & our first finish in the money.

Wind: SW 6 to 10 kts, Clear 80

Ebb began shortly after the start.  Very strong ebb at Lord’s & Napatree.  We should have considered the beach east of Napatree point then the CT shore, or tried tucking inside between Cans 7 & 9 before crossing.   Seth steered for most of the race, all windward legs.
7th out of 8

Two foot sea at the start, ebb began at 1115 halfway down the back side of the island. Wind died 1300 to 1500, a drifter.
The wind took a 2 hour intermission at the Watch Hill MOA.  We probably would have withdrawn had we an outboard. A breeze slowly built out of the east and  built to a strong beam reach to the finish near Gate’s Island at 1723.  The Committee boat was no longer on station.  Picked up the mooring 1815.
