Half Moon Bay Race

August 16, 2009   

I had a great time on the Quest 33 going down to Half Moon Bay this weekend. We rounded the mark ahead of some much larger boats and it took them the whole way down the coast to catch us up. We went rhumb line and lost 1st place at the very end when the wind died even more to 3.6knots and went dead behind. All the depth we had gained by sailing deeper than everyone else we lost as they pulled their poles back and headed downwind while we had to heat it up to keep us moving due to the swell pushing us around. All in all a beautiful sunny day on the water ending in a 3 place with first and second correcting out exactly the same only about a minute ahead of us.
