Sally and Bill,
You both sailed very well; I was particularly impressed by you first
weather leg during the second race Bill.  You sure showed us that we
needed to get to the right which we worked on for the second half of
that leg.  The fact that Wayne, Shawn and I have been sailing together
so long really paid of for us in terms of quick sets and dowses, which
saved our races.  We felt the genoa was the right headsail all day,
never considering changing down.  Shawn with two young kids at home and
me with Jonathan "on the dock" made the call to head home after
finishing the second race at 4:00.  As it was, we didn't get back to the
dock in Alameda until near dark.  Sorry to have to bail on you all.

You can get to the results from the RYC web site.  Congratulations on
the first race!  We kept our genoa up because  we were too lazy to
change it.  Since the wind seemed much lighter as you got closer to the
leeward mark/finish line I'm not sure if it made a big difference
overall.  The current and wind pattern made a huge difference in the
third race.  We rounded the windward mark just a little behind Jan on
Betty Boop, and they rounded the leeward mark way ahead of us thanks to
playing wind and current better than we did.  On the other hand, we
played it right by going left on the first windward leg of the second
race and I think rounded first -- a historic event.

	We had to leave after the first race as I had nothing but my 155
genoa for a headsail. Once the wind came up, after the first race, I
couldnt compete. Anybody giving an analysis of the other two? We were
thrilled to get third in the first race.
