crew: Charley, Jeff, Greg, Eric, Maureen, Roberto, Chris, Shire

WE WON!   WE WON!   WE WON!

Twelve knots, plus and minus, out of the southwest.  The skipper decided to fly the #2 which turned out to be the right choice.  The crew did darn good with tacking and gybing, setting things up and trimming the sails.  We had a good downwind run then turned at R8 for a spinnaker reach to the finish.  We beat Hermosa boat-for-boat as well as Shanachie!  And, WE WON the race by correcting over Evolution, the Mumm!!  Charley expressed admiration for the crew of one of the boats who are always out there racing even though they usually finish at the end of the pack.  We do it for the fun, but it sure is nice to win.
