Independence Regatta: August 4-6, 2012

Day 1 - Regatta Race 1

Seven cruisers hit the line on Day 1 (Sat) in the first race for an unusually light-winded start to the Regatta - Ernesto was warming up somewhere else. And how ironic - it's been blowing and blowing since mid-April and here we are on the first day of Regatta and no wind. So, unsurprisingly, no great drama in this shortened race with Blue J flying off in what wind there was and crossing the line ten minutes ahead of the next boat (Chen), and eight minutes ahead of Aurora on handicap with Steffi a close 18 seconds behind.
