I’m STILL to finish the report for the 2009 nationals, but I thought I’d upload a few photos taken by Fotoboat.com
These were taken on the 1st day, in relatively flat water and around 20 knots of breeze. On the Sunday the camera boats didn’t go out, so we have little record of the huge conditions that the fleet enjoyed. Anyway, thanks to Fotoboat for the great coverage of the event. If you haven’t checked them out yet, jump over and see if they have a photo of you.
Top mark, 1st lap 1st race. We rolled the guys in front of us here during the hoist:
Getting ready to gybe after the first mark rounding. Backs need to be straighter really, but we were looking for depth so we weren’t pushing it too hard:
Bottom mark, ready to drop.
