Danny and I are back in the Grove for more Star Racing. This time the Schoonmaker Cup with 20 other teams.
For this event, I am crewing for Danny. It has been fun to share the Star with him this past year and I hope he enjoys Star sailing for as many years as me and his grandfather have!
It’s been a while since I was in the front of a Star and today we had 3 races in 15 knots from the east. I will sleep well tonight!
We had some great moments and some more challenging moments. At the end of the first day, we are tied for 9th with Arthur Anosov, the winner of the Masters two weeks ago.
Augie Diaz and Arnie Baltins had a great day with a 2, 1, 1. Brian Cramer of Canada is in second and George Szabo third.
Two more races are scheduled for tomorrow and the forecast is 10 knots from the east. That should be more to our liking. Team Cayard, at 380lbs all up, likes the lighter winds.
