Today the Pre-regatta before the Worlds started here in Tallinn. We had four good inshore races in light to medium winds 7 to 14 knots. In our C class there are 20 boats competing in the Pre-Worlds One Sails Cup.
We had a good day and we are in the lead after day one with the results 4, 2, 2 and 1.5 with a total score of 9.5. After us we have Sugar 3 (Italia 11.98) and Adelante (J-112E). All results are here: https://data.orc.org/public/WEV.dll?action=series&eventid=ybuuh&classid=C
We are pleased with todays racing and for every race during the day we improved our sailing so we are very much looking forward to tomorrow when there are three new inshore races planned. But the competition from all the Estonian boats are really though and we have to sail the best we can to beat them.
We would also like to thank Anna Drougge for coming a few days earlier in the week to train with us when we had one crew member waiting for negative Covid tests (that he had in the end). Anna flew in to Tallinn on short notice and joined us for training a few days and what a pro she is and we want to thank her warmly for that as it helped us to prepare in a difficult situation!
The pictures and the video below are from the offshore training we did yesterday where we had up to 25 knots of wind and we had a long downwind ride with great spinnaker training with in wind and waves.
