Sailing reports

On Sunday 8th October 2017, I raced at Largo Bay SC. The sailing conditions were acceptable i.e. overcast sky, about average temperature and light to medium wind. On the first race, I had a relatively poor start. Although I was on the line on time, I had no speed and could not take off. I tacked immediately but could not catch the leaders. My mark rounding was not too bad but my roll tacks were poor. To add insult to injury, the wind died on the last lap. On the second race, I had a much better start, I had free air and stayed with a few leaders. I had a tactical battle with a couple of laser and I finished fourth with a few boats length behind the third place. I was not dissatisfied with my day but more work is required.
