Today was racing day. Our day began with a quick start, with oatmeal for breakfast. At around 7:30 I headed over to Midnatt Solen for a sail-racing meeting. After we talked about where we were going and what not, all of the skippers picked out of a hat what place we started in for the beginning of the race. I picked 3rd. Finally we were on our way to the starting line. As we approached the starting line the radio was counting down from 10, 9, 8…3, 2,1 we were off and sailing at about 4.2 knots. We came in 7th place in that race, which wasn’t the best nor the worst. During our time in port, we ate lunch, and then had a second race. Today was hectic but a completing day.
