September 22, 2019

It was a windy day for the 2019 3-CRIB Fiasco (pursuit race) with 23 boats starting! We saw gusts up to 35 knots, with a sustained breeze in the mid-’20s. Racers had their choice to start northbound or southbound, and with the TWD (true wind direction) of 200–220 degrees the clear choice was the South course leaving racers with two tight jib reaches, a beat, and a hot spinnaker run!
