AmericaOne Nautica 2000 Star Class World Championship:
Race 6 - The Final Race

Daily Report - May 22, 2000-

Annapolis, MD

 

Pooched the last race. Got stuck in the middle up the first beat, no where to go on either side. We finished 37th, which dropped us to seventh place overall. It was a very disappointing way to finish. However, the goal when we came here was to qualify and we did that nicely (second country). If you would have offered us seventh overall a week ago we would have jumped at it. And winning a race was bonus.

In terms of Sydney we feel that we are progressing well. We still have a click of speed to find upwind, but downwind we are second to none. Part of the problem is that we are sailing the wrong type of boat and we are looking into getting something better for Sydney. Best

Regards,

Jamie and Gavin
