We had a couple of short-term goals on the day: smoother upwind, better team technique downwind, and better communication. It all sounds fairly straightforward, but in the heat of the moment, it's always tough to execute. As a group, I think we did fairly good work, but we still have some room for improvement. Tactically, we coughed up the lead in Race 1 and Race 3 on the last leg, which was incredibly frustrating. It drives me crazy to give up the points. Conversely, in Race 2, we passed through on the final run to the finish to win the race. I would like to claim tactical brilliance, but that was not the case. Chalk it up to great downwind technique by Doug the rest of the team to get us into a strong position for the final gybe to the finish. The team aspect is without question one of the greatest aspects of our sport. When you get the teamwork right, it shows itself spades. Conversely, when the teamwork breaks down, things spiral out of control.
