LYRA Update

The Saturday racing of LYRA was full of hi winds and exhilaration.  The competition was tough in our IRC fleet with a wide range of ratings, rig styles and boat speeds.  We worked our way through our entire wind range of sails, finishing up with our number 3 head sail and fractional spinnaker.  We ended up in fourth with only one point between each of 2nd, 3rd and 4th.  Sunday we were looking forward to going out after our target boats to gain a podium position when the weather Gods decided differently.  With our boat needing to get back to Toronto for Monday night and a strong storm scheduled to come through on Sunight, the boat opted to head to Rochester.  They would wait out most of the storm Sunday evening and then head to Toronto as soon as the storm broke.  We’ll fight for a prize again another day!
PS, our Freeman win got downsized to a third place, due to a recalculation of the finish times.
