Unfortunately it was a tough first day on the water for me. Huge tip of the cap to Captain Morgan Douglas who came out charging and is now sitting in first place after two heats. I showed up ready to roll but unfortunately my setup wasn't quite right for the 14-21 Knots of wind and I am sitting in 10th Place. Definitely not the start I wanted to have but I am confident that it's a long event and I can make some moves in the coming days.
Coming into the NASSI I knew that the light air would be where I had to work hard and evolve throughout the event and my suspicions were correct, I have put together my worklist for the day and am looking to make a few changes to the boards and get ready to find myself a few more knots.

Unfortunately they don't have all those who helped get me here listed, going to have to get that updated...
Thank you first and foremost to my Family!
