Report from the Shorthanded week end, Stavanger 28th and 29th September.
The start on saturday 11am went off in feeble winds. We all got away...
a slap on the wrist. Shame on me, I have forgotten my last race on the 24th of August of obvious reasons. It was a straight out and back race in quite calm conditiones. Going out was fair enough with a dead tailwind of 8-12 knots, but getting home in the light conditiones was harder. Marie G is not quick against light winds with a smallish sail area. I ended up in a 16th place of 19 boats.
There was a race held the 15th of September in really windy conditiones. The track would suit Marie G with junkrig very well, but I preferred to race my motorcycle on Jyllandsringen in Demark. I had a great weekend there despit falling off the bike on saturday from a good 2nd position. The sunday race brought me a hard earned 3rd place. Still life in the old bones!
