Apologies for the lack of posts/Race Start

Well, your offshore RC has been having computer intenet problems. Thanks to Stephanie from Swiftsure, who just spent a couple of hours with the folks responsible for our internet, we now actually have internet! Yeah Stephanie.

Yesterday the race got off to a picture perfect start with 5 boats crossing the line together. A few boats were late to the start, having been late to leave the docks in Astoria. Eric said that there were swells of 4-6 going out the mouth of the Columbia and things settled down once they got out into the ocean.

All 17 boats did finally start in 10-15 knots of west wind,.
