The breeze was stable in direction with a velocity of 10-15 knots, a chamber of commerce day. On the Spaceman Spiff, we worked out a lot of boathandling issues today; our corners were much better. It is so important to have good consistant teamwork on the boat. Everyone on the boat plays a role in maneuvers, and if one person makes a mistake it affects the whole maneuver. This has been one of the challenges of sailing a new boat that no one has sailed before: we just don't know how things work. Well we figured it out, and got around the course without any issues. Owner/driver Rob Ruhlman struggled a bit in the short chop that Key West is known for. We were in great positions to take advantage, but just couldn't quite push through the barrier and get to the leader. The whole day it was very tight and close racing. You had to sail the perfect race to get the win: one mistake, and you were fifth.
