Barcelona

The breeze was in from the East and the racing was on. Artemis had a good day with a 7, 2, 4. But it wasn’t without a lot of fighting with the other boats as the fleet is incredibly even.

Two boats flew protest flags against us in the first race so we will have to defend those if they come to fruition. The jury on the water did not whistle either of the incidents and they were within 2 boat lengths of both, so we felt confident we were ok. But you never know what will happen when you go to the room.

There was a big seaway because the wind had been blowing all night, so there was some technique involved in both upwind and downwind sailing. Our speed on average was very good in these conditions.

Three races are scheduled for tomorrow so another long day. In fact, three races will be scheduled each day as the race committee is trying to get 12 races in.
