2006 Harvest Moon Regatta

Otra Vez competed in the 2006 Harvest Moon Regatta, which is hosted by the Lakewood Yacht Club. The course is 150nm, starting at the Flagship Hotel Pier on Galveston Island and finishing in the Port Aransas ship channel.

Light winds at the start and finish made for a real test of patience. We we very well placed for the first 120 miles, but made a serious tactical blunder not to head inshore as the wind clocked around and lightened. As a result we were caught offshore with a very poor running angle (i.e. VERY SLOW) to the finish.

Nevertheless, the boat performed well and fun was had by all.
