Very light wind apart from down by Passage Island where the spinnaker ripped when the wind shifted 180 degrees. Finished 8th out of 8. Was a nice day or a sail, but could have done with a lot more wind. The course was shortened so we actually were able to finish. Came 7th out of 8th.

Devils Tankard Race #3. Good wind at the start heading north, but quickly dropped of and making the windward mark was a struggle. Made it round Bird Island and headed home crossed the finish line about 16 minutes after the time limit for a DNF, but at least I finished.

Fraser River Race on Wingaway. Short crew of 4 which made spinnaker handling interesting, but we were able to do it. Good wind at times made it a great race.

Wild 2nd race for the Devils Tankard. Winds were gusting at times to 35 knots. Good thing it was a fully crewed boat (Wingaway) as the average speed of the boat was 6.8 knots. Came in 2nd in the race.
