Just me & the gals...again!

We did the Commodore's Cup races on Saturday, and the weather was iffy. Light breeze out of the SE and a constant threat of rain, which held off mostly until AFTER the two races. Same crew as last week.

Our fleet only consisted of us and Paikea, but it was fun anyway. The series is two races, and in the event of a tie, the winner of the second race is deemed champion. The same thing happened last year, except with a different result.

Of course, this year we won the first race and lost the second (by 54 seconds), so we took second place by default. If we had to lose to someone, we're happy it was Paikea. But it was a fun pair of races (even though I can think of plenty of areas we could have made up the time difference in the second one if I'd been concentrating more) and everyone did a great job.
