Thursday 6/01

Adam, Erich, J.R. and me were the crew for Thursday's race. There were only about 10 boats racing, possibly because of the thunderboomers rolling through that night.

We raced in diminishing winds, and as the skies got dark in the west, we ghosted between the bell and Welch's point. Rounding the mark and heading toward the finish of a shortened race at the channel marker, the wind picked up and lightning was sparking closer and closer, and we finished that leg quickly.

As we crossed the line we immediately dropped the sails and motored into the harbor. Moments after we tied up, the sky opened up and the rain came pouring down.

It was kind of exciting out there!
