The CLRA WNR kicked off on Wednesday with a downwind start and puffy conditions. A few new faces (Karen, Natalie, David), missing some faces (Vincent, Walter, Anne, Doug, Mitch, Eric and more), but still twelve J/22s on the line. In the coming weeks we should have even more.
Apparently some WNR cobwebs still need to be dusted. Like remembering what that pesky yellow flag with red stripes means, and which mark you are to round even after rounding it twice before. I was unfortunately unable to get the boat out, but watched from the crowded dock at Villa Capri. Quite a sight. Results here.
Two J/22s had the RaceQs tracking turned on, but it is deceptive. "Banner" is actually the Bethancourts, and the "Payaso" track took the end-around via Hwy 146 and NASA Road 1. Try to remember to turn on your RaceQ tracking next time. It's very interesting to watch the replays.
Owners: Encourage your crew to sign up on this website. Eventually we will have a good database of J/22 crew contacts, and lack of crew will no longer be an excuse to sit it out.
Crew: Please sign up on this website. It's free.
Stay tuned for upcoming news on our Cabo races. The first one is Wednesday May 3.
