This morning we woke up to some Sweet Home Alabama. We had the rest of the cereal for breakfast. After breakfast, we went to a skipper’s meeting on Mike’s boat, The Remedy. We talked about how the race was going to go down. Everyone got a number and whichever number you got, that was the number that said which position you were in for the start. We got number 9 right next to my brother Toby’s boat. He also happens to be skipper today. When we started we pretty much took off from the beginning. For a little while, we were fighting with La Bella Vita for first place, but we eventually got pretty far in front of them. Near the end of the race, we had to tack twice to cross what we thought was the finish line. It turned out that the finish line was the other side of the buoy so we finished backward. We still have yet to hear if we got first or if it didn’t count. In all, it was a great day and we had a lot of fun. date: Jul 27, 2017
