Rosehearty (on the right) by night

St. Barts

The wind was a light easterly today, 7-9 knots.  This makes things a lot slower and a little more challenging when you weigh in at 500 tons.

Onboard Rosehearty, we sailed a good race, probably as best we could.  However, we were no match for the speed of the smaller and lighter Axia who won in our class.  We were second again which puts us in a tie for first place in the “Grande Dame” class.  Axia will prevail in the tie breaker by winning the last race.

For Rosehearty, and Joey K, her owner, this was a great first regatta result.  We won the Perini division for the week and were on the podium in every race!

Next stop for these boats is the Loro Piana regatta in June in Porto Cervo.

Next race for me is the Star Western Hemisphere Championship in mid April in Miami.

Thanks or following us!
