More from Craig at the 5O5 North Americans in Santa Cruz, with thanks to John Navas for the photo.  Results here.

Today we had three races sailed in a southwesterly breeze that ranged from 6-10 knots. The conditions were atypical for this venue, but provided some great tactical racing that was fair and challenging. Holding lanes was critically important and the teams that kept their boats powered up and in the best pressure ended the day on top.

Two teams delivered standout performances; Howie Hamlin and Andy Zinn in USA 9080 and Augie DIaz and Fritz Lanzinger in USA 8808 ended the day with all top three finishes and all three race wins between them. Particularly impressive was in Race 2 when Howie and Andy hit the gate launch at the start, did a 360 to exonerate their penalty, and recovered to finish second in the race!

After racing, a competitor’s de-brief was held on the SCYC deck where the top finishers from the day led a discussion about what they were doing to get their boat around the course the fastest. One the best things about sailing in the 505 class is the open sharing of information and the ability for teams in the middle to back of the fleet to be able to ask questions of the top teams. This allows new sailors in the class to be able to get up to speed quicker and have more fun on the race course.

The forecast is for Day 2 is again on the lighter side, but the weekend should deliver a classic Santa Cruz thermal. Stay tuned as the series continues through the weekend.
