The Conanicut Yacht club has run this race 93 times now. It is, for me one of the fun events in Narragansett Bay. Windward, Leeward courses are frankly a chore. The SW breeze filled nicely and made it all the more enjoyable.
With the winches electrified we are able to sail the boat with 5. instead of 12-15. We miss the weight on the rail upwind, which is worth about 1/2 knot. The joy of being on the water was unmatched.
A WONDERFUL WEEKEND OF CLOSED COURSE SAILING IN NEWPORT RHODE ISALND.
