The race was beautiful! Very long but satisfying. We placed 2nd overall in the long course and could have taken first if we had of read the last minute amendment which eliminated one mark rounding (balenas island)... frustrating but so it goes. The weather was gorgeous, couldn't have asked for better considering what this race has brought in the past!... meditating on the ocean for that long.. we raced for 30 hours... Sunset, moon rise, shooting stars, luminescence, spinnaker run under a nearly full / waning moon, sunrise, harbour porpoises, and lots of laughs on the rail.
