The first race was interesting with some good shifts to take advantage of. The leeward gate was a bit busy with the Melges 24 fleet arriving at the same time. We finished a respectable 16th and re grouped for the second race.
Flojito Y Cooperando had a massive lead and took race one with their new Ullman main. They played the shifts really well upwind and had great speed.

Greg Koski: "We stayed focused and worked excellent as a team as we found the wind shifts in very shifty conditions. We stuck to our game plan and this was a big benefit within the racing."
Keith Magnussen: "The racing was really close with many lead changes. It was important to stay focused and positive as the wind shifts were tough. We did well changing gears and are happy with boat speed. Looking forward to more tough racing through the week."
