Attached are a few photos. The day’s story was that the prevailing wind was still coming from onshore, behind the island, same as last week, but it was greater in velocity. There were some excellent duels, with skippers looking very smart while taking and losing and regaining positions. Several skippers were thwarted by a couple of the very few types of equipment failures that can happen in an Optimist dinghy. Though very disappointed, they have gained experience in how to sometimes correct matters while remaining in a race. The skippers who did best on Sunday have clearly listened to and understood what they have been told about the tactics for racing towards and rounding the upwind buoy.
other news: 3 new Optimist dinghies for San Pedro will arrive on Friday (November 4).
