Laser Master Worlds - Day 4

The forecast called for 10-20 knots out of the South, but that wasn't looking likely at 9 this morning, as a light easterly was blowing through the boat park. The overcast skies weren't promising for a southerly change either, but nonetheless it came through, allowing the race committee to get three races off before a light rain descended on the boat park.

OK, I'm just too tired to write. Short story (for now): I have my mojo back. Wasn't keeping the boat powered up enough before. Great starts, great speed upwind and down, saw scores of 3, Retired, 1 for the day. In the second race I was in 2nd grinding down 1st on the run and the jury yellow-flagged me, saying the boat was rocking. I didn't think so, but because this was my second "offense" of the event, I was forced to retire. Would've been 1st or 2nd in that one for sure. Shoulda, woulda, coulda...

Am in a three-way tie for 4th place going into the last day of racing tomorrow, but my bullet in the last race has me ahead of the others. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
