A great day for Artemis today with a 4, 1 which moved us into second place in the regatta.
The start of racing was delayed again today while the Easterly seabreeze established itself.
The Easterly wind was very spotty and shifty which made for extremely tricky racing. Onboard Artemis, we had two excellent starts again. In the first race, we got out of phase with the shifts and at one point were last. A great move on the left got us into 5th at the top and then we ground one more boat down to get 4th.
In the second race we led wire to wire, controlling the left side of the race course upwind.
Tomorrow is scheduled to be the Coastal Race. The wind is forecast to be a strong Northeasterly which will produce a fair amount of wave chop.
