More Etchells USA 125 pictures from our Sunday morning departure

Just before we raised the jib.

Underway during a calm, sparkling morning.

Getting a bit of way on.

So long!
Only one race was completed Sunday by the Etchells and combined fleets; we finished third across the line among nine boats, including three other Etchells. Zorro finished first on his Etchells, "Constellation", followed by the New Mexico Tech sailing club students on their very-well-sailed J24, and then Carol Anne's crew on USA 125, "Black Magic". Also well sailed was the J22, "Imafirst". Conditions were light and shifty, resulting in a lot of "hero to zero" moments on the race course. As the first race ended, conditions rapidly became heavier and all four Etchells began the long beat back home. Some other boats held a second race, but found the going very heavy.
