Day 2 started with the first race being abandoned where we crossed the fleet on Port from the pin, and rounded the top mark 2nd, holding third around the reach mark. The next race didn't go so well, not following out strategy off the start line and having to pick off boats from behind to finish 10th. We picked up out game in the next race and got a 3rd, and the last race we finished 8th but ended 7th due to taking one of the teams into a protest for mark room. We won the protest, and found that learning how to present your case and stay professional in the protest room was an invaluable experience if we ever ended up there at a bigger event.
Day 3 the wind wasn't there to complete any races, only starting 2 but being quickly postponed or abandoned. It was a lot of waiting around in the heat and the pack up afterwards really took it out of us, sleeping in car until we made it to Gundagai for the night! (not in the best accommodation around either... eek!!)
All in all it was great to feel like we're getting somewhere, and we're excited to see what we do in the next few months leading into nationals. The calendar looks pretty full....!! Also thanks to Johnny Rogers for his valued coaching support over the regatta and for Dad's effort driving up and back with all the boats :) :)
