The first time that I have sailed the Ray in a southerly. As expected, the western course is very square and allows for runs up to about 2.5Km. I went with the intention of getting a good 1 hour result and added over 4 knots to my PB, despite stopping to adjust my kit a few times! I also improved on my previous alpha racing PB by about half a knot but some faster ones would have been possible had I tightened my gybes slightly. All in all today was a lot of fun. It was nice to sail with Ian, Pete, Stephen and the other local speedies.
