Nice Wednesday race - windy
Daniele and I got groceries to spend the night at anchor after the Wednesday race.
Winds were very good 10-14 knots.
Jimmy and Tilde enticed us to take them as crew. We took off motoring down the channel since winds were about 30 degrees off.
We tuned the rig and had some good practise when I notice that the race had started. We had 4 minutes to get to the start line with the White Sail fleet. We were about a minute behind.
I took the helm and made Jimmy and Daniele and Tilde handle the lines.
Jimmy tried cranking and releasing, I think we tried him. Daniele got tired of cranking after the first windward leg.
We ended up third out of fourth. We don't really know what happened to Borlean
