Four races were held today in 12-15 knots from the northeast to close out the qualifying part of the SSL Finals. The adjustments we made last night were right on the money and we were quite fast upwind and downwind. When you are fast it is much easier to be smart and go the right way. Tutu and I scored 2, 1, 3, 14. We finished the qualifying series in 7th.  Big move from 15th this morning!
 
The best part is that our trend is up. It’s a nice way to go into the quarter final race tomorrow.
 
The format is:
The number 1 qualifier goes straight to the Final
The number 2 qualifier goes straight to the Semi Finales
Qualifiers 3-10 race the quarter final race. The top 6 go onto the semi final and join qualifier #2. The top three from this race go forward to join #1 for the Final, winner takes all, race.
 
Everyone is tired. We will be sleeping for 10 hours tonight. Weigh in for all teams tomorrow morning at 08:00. The quarter final race starts at 11:00EST.
