RTIA Treasure Cay To Guana Cay

Our ace reporter Stafford Patterson checked in about the Treasure Cay to Guana Cay race:

Monday morning and the breeze is light and we like this. A few more crew than Saturday including former Junior sailor James and Ally Boyce. Winds were light as we started the Treasure Cay to Great Guana Cay Race. Halfway to the windward marker the winds shifted from South to nothing, then South again except now its blowing 12 – 15 MPH and we didn’t rig a reefline ‘cause we did not expect the winds to increase so much! Around the windward marker and we experience a navigation error and head for Spoilbank Cay instead of Whale Cay where the # 2 marker was. Ah well it put us back some, then around the marker a brutal upwind leg from the Whale to the finish line off Fishers Bay. 6th of 9 on corrected time…. going into irons (twice) didn’t help at all. Skipper Richard says that will never happen again. All Rage skippers have gone thru this learning process and that is the only way the skipper will know how NOT to go into irons, by experiencing it firsthand. Its painful, but Rich will never put the Rage in irons again…..
