Two races were held today on the Choptank in 5-10 knots of wind. Here it isn’t that the wind starts at 5 knots and builds to 10 or the reverse. Here the wind is 5-10 every minute of the day. And it shifts 30 degrees too.

Brian and I finished 3rd in the first race when we should have finished 8th or so and 11th in the second race when we were much closer to the front on the first leg. But that’s the nature of the racing here.

The Schofield brothers won the day with a 4, 1.

Arthur Anosov and his crew, Dave “Julius” Ceasar continue to dominate the regatta. The have great speed upwind and are sailing smart as well. They finished second in the first race today but were caught by the black flag at the start of the second race today (if u r over the start line early when the black flag is up u r disqualified) but will discard that score to to remain on top of the leader board tonight.

I am not sure how the scores work out as they haven’t been posted yet but I think Brian and I are in the top 5 and Arthur and Dave have a significant lead.

Two races are scheduled for tomorrow and one for Saturday.
