Race Report: SEAS Cup Race #1—Skipper’s Choice

Posted in

The opening race of the 2015 season started at 10 am at Marmion Island with Asterix as the Committee Boat.  It was sunny and clear, and the breeze was light, but forecasted to pick up in the afternoon.  High Noon and Optiminium were fast across the start line, followed by Thalia, Surprise, Loa’a Nalu, Cetus, and Tango in a cluster.  Haiku took the opportunity to change headsails early on and was passed off the line by most of the boats.  High Noon never looked back, Thalia moved into second flying her Code 1 sail, and the rest of the boats spread out between the start line and Pt Arden.
