choke artist

I managed to get one of the worst starts imaginable, and right there choked away a very good shot at second overall in the amazingly hard sailed and competitive CRA Beercan Series. God damnit! So we ended up third overall behind the two Melges 32’s and easily ahead of the other two FT 10’s in our class.
Anybody who has sailed in San Diego Bay in summer evenings with often crazy tides and tricky breeze (oh and fuck tons of kelp) knows how difficult it is. Fun, challenging and a helluva good series. Nice work CRA. Results here.
I have to give a huge thank you to all the peeps who sailed with me over the 10 races: Mary Hardy, Anastasia Berta, Maddie Keefe, Paige Johnston, Pete Woodworth, Eric Heim, Sean Kelley, Danny North, Rodrigo Doll, Sandy Warwick. I appreciate each and every one of you. ed.
