Jim Cooley, the owner of Windward, a Catalina 27 tall rig didn't just have a good day, he and his team having been having a great weekend so far, with five first-place finishes, and a second. "I have a phenomenal crew, the boat's well-prepared, and we've been sailing it well and making good decisions," said Cooley. "We had a good day, three races, and scored a 1,1,2, and the second-place finish was by about two feet. You find out what you're made of in these types of conditions. It's really tough out there." When asked if it was more survival than fun, Cooley said, "It's fun for us, but we know what we're doing. For the people who don't, it's not fun. We just go each day and when it's over, that's what we did." Cooley's had the boat since 1982 and races it constantly all summer long. "I take the boat out on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and when we get a lot of people out on the boat. I love it, that's how you grow the sport. When asked about his gameplan for the final day of racing, Cooley kept his answer simple. "We'll do the best we can," he said. "It'll be lighter, but we'll be fine. I'm not even sure what we broke today but my crew's already fixed it, but it cost us that second place. That was tough, but it's all right, we came back."
