I love Clearwater Florida! The white sand beaches warm weather and I always have fun. This year was great one of my better regattas. I had a great qualifier for Gold fleet Top 15 each race. Even got 2nd place in a couple of races. I did have UFD (Over early with a U flag) in one of my races. But that didn’t stop me. I placed top ten in the first day after qualifying series. I moves from 17th to 9th place. I was so happy! Today was the last day and it was a tough one. The wind was coming from the East and waves from North and the windward mark was off set to the right of the course. The first race was bad. I couldn’t find the right grove in moving through the waves. I got 31st and that I had to keep. The next race I had nothing to lose. I had a great start and went left. There was a shift and the wind went left and I was in the top ten again. Boy I was excited. Past a few more boats and finished in 9th. This moved me to 10th place where I finished. I am heading home for the week but will be back in Florida soon!
