A Mini really isn’t a can racer!

That’s ok, it was good practise. Danno and I went out last night and put the mini around the marks during the ABYC race night. Danno has never been on the boat before and I’ve only had a handful of practises, so it was interesting to say the least. We had a great time and managed to do most of the course, but since we have no engine, we decided to head in while it was still light!  The Mini has a very wide tacking angle and to get to the Dry Sail crane there is a very narrow chanel, which guarantees the breeze is always on the nose!  We made it in not too badly, unlike during the practise session earlier that day where we ran aground a dozen times!  Tonight we race the A35 out at Port Credit Yacht Club…..Hope there’s breeze!
