The regatta in Austin last weekend was a bunch of fun! The winds were shifty and the conditions were difficult. Our sailors did a great job of concentrating on their speed while creating productive strategies. Tactics were not as sharp as I would like so we will continue to work on that. Mark-roundings and starts seem to be very solid.
