TRYC Blow-out, Day One

The Blow-out started today, very steady wind gave a good course with little adjustment. Wind was B-rig most of the day, dropping to A in the late afternoon for a few races. I had a lousy day sailing, which I'll detail later...I've just got to find a way to stay clear. I've had a few zone contacts which killed me with 720's, and when I've avoided that I've been pummeled at the start (twice), on starboard (twice), the windward mark (once), and one boat doing a penalty turn hit me for good measure. On the plus side, the boat seems fast enough, I just need to find clean lanes to sail in, and steer better downwind.

Hopefully tomorrow will go better...Here's a few pics courtesy of Roo roaming with the camera!
