Went racing at the club, they have regular Wed. night races for anyone, any boat. I have been racing my Cat.22 but it is hard work to go alone. So I joined two friends and raced on a Scott. Boy what a different boat. Moves at a touch of the tiller. I was helms woman and had a hard time not over steering. We started in third place but moved to second on the final leg by out tacking the second place boat. Great fun. The one of the women on the boat is a Lipton and Scott world champion (she had nothing to do with winning) and is very intense about racing. I hadn't raced in a long time. Used to crew for a fellow in N.O. who had a J30 and it was fun to start a race with 30 or 40 boats.
