Not so great: Megan decided to sail a Laser herself instead of crewing for me.
Great: a chance to do it singlehanded (!).
Not so great: reverse start gave sabots a 45 minute head start.
Great: took advantage of South wind to sail around the island "the other way".
Not so great: wind shifted to North as I exited deadwind channel.
Not so great: sabots got there about the same time (!),
Great: got mast back up and flew up to top of island, fetched it in one tack,
Not so great: met all Lasers FJs C-14s etc at the top, (but Great: they still had to negotiate bridge),
Great: flew down main channel wing-and-wing,
Not so great: sabots emerged from deadwind channel way ahead of me, but
Awesomely Great: a huge puff took me past all of them to squeak by at the line.
Also great: Meg finished in fine style, I was most proud. Pretty much a perfect day :)
