I can say only a bit about the first race, because i had to leave the races after that to prepare my regularly dj set.
I followed Justin after a little sleepy start to buoy 1 and 2 and caught up slowly. On the way to buoy 3 i could pass him and then i had him for a couple of legs in my neck until i could manage to sail away from him a bit. Later some little mistakes let him catch up again.
Somewhere in the south west corner of the course i lost him totally. He said after the race he collided with Amy there and lost much time there. Poor Justin, it was a nice duel until then.
The sims seemed to be unusually crashy for some of the sailors yesterday. In my race i havent had any issues and all went pretty smooth.
hugs and kisses

Starting too slow because I had 4 or 5 screen freezes at the pre-start, I’m catch Ester at purple buoy, and pass her. I heard a STARBOARD, as I was heading south in the direction of the scratched pink buoy, and I checked that I also had a starboard, it just didn’t give me time to dodge Justin coming in ROW. And I collided Justin in the middle of the boat.

It was a fun race as usual. I had no issues other than the collision with Amy. It was a hard bump making me spill my beer! The workers in the boat yard said they will have the scratches rubbed out and fresh paint on in time for next Saturday.
