Nice to hear the horn when you crossed the finish, that means you were 1st.
I lived in Bermuda for 8 years in the '70s and raced Solings until the maintenance got to much for me to carry plus keeping a reliable crew.
Only a few of the NAVY guys I knew turned out to be sailors.
Then I got a Laser and loved it. What a hoot it was sailing that little boat in 25-30 kn winds with the waves splashing me and the dagger board buzzing like a giant bumble bee.

Stay out of dirty air when going upwind and get that whisker pole hooked up as soon as you can.

At 5:38, your skipper should have headed above the stern of that boat in front of you and taken the wind out of his sails and you'd have passed him instead of letting him head you off. Oh well. . Don't know how you manage filming and crewing at the same time. Great multi-tasking!

Great video! I'm sure you will agree that racing makes you a much better cruising sailor and removes some of your fear of what boats will and will not take. Thanks.

How fast can your Merit 25 go in a tack? I usually get around 6.4-6.7 knots on a day like this on a tack in my catalina Capri 22. I am wondering how the Merit 25 compares...

Love this! We race on an Olson 30, very similar to this setup. Ultra light racing? I wonder how many knots you were in and how fast you were going?

For a guys who sailed his own boat down to the Bahamas and back, they sure don't let you do much.

I go where I'm needed, they need a nimble person on the bow. One on tiller, one on winches, one tails the winch (if needed) and an agile person on bow. Next video, I'm on the winches trimming the jib.

Sweet racing!!!!! Reminds me of my ole "J24" days when I was younger and skinnier, like you and they always put me up front to jump around and do all the work..."Like You!!!"

Thanks Allyn, getting better out there! I'm not sure how many boats we were up against this day typically it's around 4 or 5 in our class, 6 on a good day.

i used to race a lot of the beer can races many years ago and had a great time. Most of the guys I sailed with went on to sail in the Trans Pac and other races. I couldn't take the time for those. Whenever we get together today they don't talk much about the big races, we talk for hours about the beer can races.

I have a 19 foot flying Scot and I live in Virginia (high winds is around 10-20) mph and on Saturday we are getting 30 mph winds with 55mph wind gusts... Great...
