Off to the races!

I’m at North Cape Yacht Club, here at the western end of Lake Erie.

I’m racing tomorrow for the first time on Tin Lizzie, a 312 mile solo down to Buffalo then back to finish at Erie. See the race info here.

Got my racing main on today for the first time. Looks nice, especially after that T10 training main.

Weather looks like 5-15 knots windspeed spinnaker reaching to Buffalo, then light upwind to Erie. I can do that. My hope is to finish Sunday evening. We’ll see.

There is a nifty race tracker here. Check it out over the weekend!

For those watching at home, I should note that there are a variety of boats racing, and I owe all of them time. I’m scratch boat. So being ahead is not unexpected. It’ll be fun.
