Think you have had bad regattas? How about this report from an unamed competitor from the A Cat Worlds?
Today was one of the most unlucky days of my sailing career…First race – very little wind and I end up being shittiest (last). Second race nice puff, I come 12th at the first mark and keep it, second winward leg I come in on port and an asshole forces me to come in on starboard, then to avoid a collision, I caught the buoy in between the hulls. I departed almost last and ended up shittiest for the second time. Third race: I started well, came to the windward mark in 8th and then 12th at the bottom. I rounded the mark and go 200m windward as the strap that keeps the sail on the boom explodes: I capsize and the regatta was over – shit! Note: the strap came with the sail which was brand new! What a shitty day!
