A great weekend of racing with everybody with Vento Solare finishing 2nd place overall. Crew work was fantastic all three days. Starting from the bow with Roland, mast with Will, pit with Andrew, trimming with Sarah & Mary, and main / tactics with Trevor (Jeff Roy for Around the Island on Friday). We saw the full spectrum of wind from 5 to 22 kts over 3 days.
Congrats to Divided Sky who put up all first place finishes. The rest of the class including J/109 URSA, J/99 Upbeat, Sunfast 3300 Avalon and Express 37 COUCOU all provided the challenge as fierce competitors.
A quick note about the finish recorded as 20:45:56 on the JYC website for the Tuesday race on 8 August. Roland noticed that the recorded time did not correspond to the finish order where we were behind Samba and in front of Grimace. I corresponded with the race committee and the finish time recorded on their scoring sheet is 20:24:56. The finish time will be updated on the JYC website and the results updated. I will send the results when the update is made.
A great Ida Lewis Distance Race with the winning "Youth" entry. Joe Cooper captured this post race interview of crew members while heading back to the dock.

A little spinnaker carnage on the way back from Block Island. RIP 2016 Class Spinnaker
Great job everyone in the 5 July Tuesday night crew. We are in first place for the summer series after 4 races.
Adam Walsh sent a message to me on the physics of sail trim that I've posted on the website at this link. Please take a look and pick up some great trim tips there.
