On the last beat of the race, the fleet went right. Interlodge and us took a calculated risk, and sent it straight into the left corner. In many ways, we won the regatta on this leg. Doug, Don, Jonesy, and Sean had the boat trucking, and as we sailed for the better part of 10 minutes on a big right-hand shift, Michele and I were convinced/willing the wind to go back left. We kept seeing sniffs of lefties but nothing major until about 2 minutes from layline. You could see the fleet stacked up to the right bucking the current out of Key West, and not making as much of a gain as they should. Mick said, "Not looking as bad as it should!" Quite true were those words as we got close to layline, tacked, and instantly got lifted. For the next two minutes, we were all quiet knowing that it was a make or break moment in the race. Doug and Don kept us trucking, and low and behold as we approached the top mark, we had done the complete end around the fleet. Zero to hero--opportunistic? Maybe. Lucky? Yep! The final run to the finish was uneventful, and while we crossed the line second, we saved the 20 seconds that we needed to on Mayhem to win. It was a big race, and the race of the regatta for Quantum Racing! As we crossed the line, we all knew that the wind gods were shining on Quantum Racing, and for the rest of the day it would be a matter of holding serve.
