This past Sunday was the VRC Single Handed Anything Goes Race, or S.H.A.G. as it's affectionately referred to by most of the sailors. I joined 20 other boats out on English Bay for a race that would take us all around the bay. We had great winds, great competition and a perfect course. We had loads of boats out, and the boats who were out on the longer course had the added traffic of all of the dinghies sailing out of the Jericho Sailing Centre. Despite being really late for the start, I managed to catch some of my competitors by the time I got the the first mark. After a successful spinnaker hoist, my first ever single handed gybe, and a pretty successful take down I managed 'round the leeward mark and cross the finish line. I was happy to have finished the race and pleased with my mid-pack finish position!
