Here we go

     Tomorrow starts the first day of racing. So far we have had two windy practice days, one very light, and a practice race this afternoon. The conditions here are very shifty and hard to predict. The coaches who were here for the men's worlds have said that it was a 'heads up' regatta.
     Yesterday in the light air there were some informal races run by coaches. I was having trouble deciding when to tack on shifts, and when to sail through them to get to new breeze filling in from a side. I'm still not sure of the answer to this, but I know that during the racing it will be very important to see ahead.
     My focus for tomorrow will be a good start, and keeping my head out of the boat. Forecast is calling for 7-12.
