As I indicated earlier, every Block Island Race race is unique this one was no different. We sailed the course in just under 21 hours; the fastest I have ever completed the course. However, every other boat also sailed their fastest race. We started at 3:15 pm on Friday afternoon, we were out of the sound by 9 pm, 1BI at 1am Saturday morning, finishing at 12 noon Saturday. The wind was 15-35 knots from 315-015 compass bearing, with rain on and off. Back in Newport by 6:30 pm that night.
