Today, they had the same speed, the same boathandling, and the same tactical process, and they got a 2, 2 in probably the toughest class at Quantum Key West Race Wek. The difference was they got a few breaks and a couple of lifts at critical times, and nothing else changed!
On my “Hoss” team, we had something of the same situation today. In Race 2, I got a little out of phase at the top of the beat, and we lost a couple of boats. No big deal, and luckily my team does not grumble about that kind of thing too much. So we did not change anything, and I did not really change my tactical thinking, except to pay attention to the oscillations a little more.
