Black Magic at the Marina Cup Race

Black Magic runs downwind on a reach. Behind her can be seen part of White Lightnin's spinnaker. Further beyond are other boats in the fleet and some Waverider trimarans that were having a regatta.

Black Magic and Chi enjoy the spinnaker run.

Black Magic in the lead at the halfway mark of the race.

Black Magic passes by the pin on the way to mark 8.

After a rough late start, which Zorro blamed on flakey shifting winds right before the start, the crew of Black Magic searched hard for wind on the first windward leg. Eventually they were able to pass their rival several boatlengths before the windward mark, set spinnaker for a reach, and power ahead downwind to keep their lead.

Great pictures! I managed to cut/paste/copy several of the most impressive. I will get a copy to the Formans!
