Race 1, was a steady 8 to 11 knots. I had a good start 20m down from the boat so I was on top of most of the fleet but had to tack early due to a boat in the course and rounded the top mark in 3rd behind Wojtek and Ross. Then on the second lap I pointed higher around the bottom mark, then tacked the same time as Wojtek and Ross and out pointed them giving me the lead. I was then able to hold them off on the down wind leg to the finish being a perfect way to start the first race in 1st.
I`m really happy with today. It was pretty light winds, but I managed to make the best out of it. The first race was close, but on the second race I got away on the second upwind. It was a nice feelings to hear the crowd cheer when I crossed the finish line.
Racing continues until Sunday 5 October.
