After the stiff breeze last week, nearly everybody reefed and used smaller jibs last night. We hit 9-10 knots several times on the reach. It was the best sail of the year! Apologies to the boats of which I didn't get a picture. I get more pictures of the boats in the PHRF class before their start and in the JAM A class in which I sail. Also, I was busier than usual last night.
