Ulabrand

We sailed the Ulabrand race.Not a lucky race for us, not now and not before.Remember last time two years ago we were leading and the committee canceled the race because it was supposedly unfair because of little wind. Little wind in the first race this year as well and coincidents played a big role plus boats with low rating had little chance. But no cancelling, which i find good. Weather conditions that are changing are part of the game and the race two years ago should never have been cancelled.

Second race was nice with even wind but a bit too much for us so that the longer hulls had an advantage. But we were satisfied with our sailing, we did very few errors. We ended third of five. Nice days on the fjord and some nice pictures.

David vs. golliath :) It looks almost weird that they dont shadow us, but the distance is more than it looks on this photo. We were controlling them nicely and they were not able to pass us during this leg....

Who has the best spinnakker trim? Keeping up with much higher rated boats.
