First Regatta

Preparations

What would a new fine boat be without the regattas! With a lot of enthusiasms (and maybe not completely matching skills) we started our first regatta on the 09 -10/12/2009! The Midwinter cup of the Braassem club!

The weather was fantastic – ok our sailing not – see the ground track:

There was broaching, shouting and definitely some mistakes. We at least did not loose completely sight contact to the rest of the fleet (there might have been only a couple of minutes in between… 😉

However, it was also very nice sailing, a steep learning and a support from other sailors and the committee boat! Thank you

There is a lot of room for improvement – but hey, we love the challange!!!
