    Commander #266. "The Way"

    My baby sitting at rest at the Niantic Bay Yacht Club.

    I raced her a few times this summer in the staggered start Sunday races. Initially my rating was textbook - 261 and we finished 1st a number of times. In fact, a couple times we were so far ahead we finished with time to order a pizza before the next boat crossed. (exaggerating, but it was a huge lead). They changed my rating - a lot.

    Full disclosure - At the helm I had a veteran ocean racer with a decade of racing on a J40 in Florida. He is teaching me how to race. We have old sails, no traveler, no self tailing winches, a Crosby rigged mainsheet, no depth or speed gauges and we still kicked ass. Had the rails in the water several times.
