2019 GHYRA results and highlights

This has been another great GHYRA campaign for PERSPECTIVE.  Here are the highlights:

  • Line honours twice (first boat across the line): Thursday & Friday
  • Podium finish in every race
    • First place finish: Tuesday
    • Three Second place finishes: Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
    • Four Third place finishes: Sunday & Monday  (Yes, we even got thirds on Canada Day, eh!)
  • Ten regular crew members sailed at least one leg each
  • Three guest crew whom I’m sure we’ll see again: Tom, Trevor & Mark E
  • Glamping with Lazy Sheet
  • Tons of laughs
  • Ghosting in light breeze and flat seas where we were able to make (and keep) our own wind.
  • Some comments from other racers last night at the awards:  “Next year, I’m just following you guys”  (Battlewagon, Nauti-Buoy)

Indeed, we took the road less traveled for three of the last four races and each time it paid off in spades.

Final result: Third overall in our fleet.  Encore! Encore!
