Sailboat racin'

Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! This Sunday, the Spitfire crew had its first race in months, and of course, first race of the year. We were a bit rusty, but still doing pretty good...until we hit a literal snag. The Spitfire got hung up on a two lined buoy that caught around the keel. Damn it! What the hell is a buoy doing with two lines? It took us a ton of time to figure out what happened and them to get the Spitfire free. Amazingly though, once free, we practically caught up with the rest of the boats. We still finished DFL, but given our detail and how close we caught up, I think we have a chance of winning the series. Of course, this makes the second time in as many times that we ran into something during the race. arg.
