Light and Tight

On The Water Anarchy

Light and Tight

Some great racing is on tap for Saturday and SA is there to bring it to you.

Yesterday’s racing at the 2008 Melges Gold Cup was a story of ups and downs.  The light wannabe Trades varied constantly from 5-9 knots, meaning endless gear-changing and lots of work for tacticians and trimmers.

Jim Schwarz’s Q stayed committed to the left all day, and it obviously paid with Q (Gavin Brady, tactician) leading the regatta.  Q launched off the pin in each of three races, and even where the pressure was on the right, the shifts up the course equalized things enough for Brady’s left calls to pay.
