Warm Up Wrap UP
Well, it turned out the wind came down and the temperatures went up (a little) so Ben and I headed out to do the warm-up regatta. They scheduled three short races, windward-leeward twice around. The whole event lasted about two hours. The water was quite lumpy but the wind had come down so much that I was on the low side as often as I was playing the vang.
Ryan tried out his new radial main sail.

Ryan and Joe head out to the course.
Eric and Chris tried out their new spinnaker (which I don't have a photo of) and Ben and I worked the kinks out since we hadn't sailed since last September.
About 11 boats started the first race and a few came in as the afternoon went by, and we were all in by 2:30. We'll have a top gun event at 4:30 and the competitors' meeting (with lots of yummy hors d'oeuvres) at about 6 pm.
Then the fun really begins tomorrow, with warmer temps and maybe some sun!
