Chicago NOOD-Day 2 Report 2
Pin End start with good distance. Rounded first weather mark in 5th. Mark approach and Down wind tactics were tricky due to very short legs (1/1.25mi).
Lanes were tight. Lost a few boats dw. Tight leeward mark rounding, but great boat mechanics by our combo team. "Flying Veatch" is doing VG on the pointy end and chipping his teeth well during this Regatta.
Finshed in 8th in a very tough Fleet. Dueled it out with Bella at the finish after two boats forced the to cede way at the finish. Bella beat us by a half boat length. Karma-tator Finished Ahead of Rally, Raptor, FOG, Joie,de vie,Erizo, Sail Monkey,AYW.
First was a 4-way tie- all at 8pts. After day 1. It Looks like "maggie mae" is running away with it after a good day. They rounded both ww marks in first. Stingray was in hot pursuit ,but not hot enough to close in on them. Let's see what the final days standings look like.
