Lake Ontario 300 Start
We hare off, close to 170 boats. We were in the 9th start, at 11:05am. We were over the line 5 mins. early, mis-read the start, and gybed back around. Had a little trouble raising the spinnaker. Then took us a little to get the boat going. We are coming up the back of the fleet. We are a few minutes from the Toronto Island Gabraltor mark. We are doing about 7.5 to 8 knots now and slowly catching up to the fleet. Once we round the marks we are pulling out a few drinks, and listening to Michael Jackson’s greatest hits. Thomas’ favorite CD, wishing all the best to the folks back home, Roxane, Thomas & Alexander, and the crew sends their wishes to their friends and family.
