This week, due to some interesting weather, we had a change from the multiple short W/L races we have been practicing and sailed a large triangle with a dock start. The course set was SITF. The wind at the dock at the start was Westerly 8 – 12 kts. Gusting to around 20. This course provided a reach along the waterfront with the wind eddying around the structures on shore, followed by an almost directly downwind run to the Tower. The wind on the far side of the bay was stronger than on the city side as indicated by confused seas and widespread whitecaps, also by some extreme heel angles. The leg from the tower to the finish was a Port tack fetch, until the last quarter mile where a large wind shift sent boats towards Point Hudson for a final tack to the finish. By the time the boats were finishing the wind at the dock had increased and its direction steadied. The evening of exciting sailing was marred by two very heavy rainshowers.
