Hurray for Seabiscuit!
We had a great race down. Kept the boat moving nicely and saw some favorable conditions for the boat. We pretty much stuck to our plan all the way down and sailed the gulf stream right where we wanted to be. We hit more unfavorable current than we anticipated post stream and probably should have stayed closer to the rhumb line after exiting the stream. We managed to capture a class win and placed fifth in the double handed division. I'm amazed at how well those J-35s did in the other DH class. Lots of work to do on the Biscuit to prep her for the delivery back to New England but I'm sure we'll manage to have some fun too.
