Monday Night Practice

It's not unusual for Challenge Practice Days in May to coincide with some uncertainty on the radar, and light turnout.  But last night we got lucky on both fronts.  At race time a narrow band of heavy rain was passing just to our west, making for a wet High School Championship regatta on the Charles, but leaving us be on the Harbor.  Even better, a servicable breeze filled in from the ENE just when we needed it and held relatively steady for about an hour - long enough for two good races.  And with 16 boats on the line, the racing wasn't too bad at all, for the first night out.  At the top of the fleet, Fidelity 2 managed to keep BzzAgent in their rear view and win the day with two bullets, three ahead of BzzAgent.  Congratulations to all for some good, tight racing in some tricky conditions.  As Team Fidelity commented afterward, it was all about thinking ahead, keeping a clear lane, looking up the course for pressure, and getting there first.  Always easier said than done.  Click here for full scores from the practice night.
 
Enormous thanks to everyone for making it out, and supporting an event that provides funding for 100 kids to participate in our summer youth program.  And special thanks again to our in-kind sponsors:  Alphagraphics, for the great looking sail logos, Capers Catering, for all those delicious sandwiches and quinoa salad, and our excellent bartender from Premier Bartending.
