I was actually a graduate. I love this race. It was as kooky as ever. Wind probaby ranged from 0mph to some rare but much appreciated gusts to 15. I started the race stuck under someone's sundeck and watched the fleet sail off. They were around the corner before I probably even crossed the line. Somewhere, somehow in the confusion of the tidal flats I apparently passed all but one person (two of whom would pass me back, and one of those who I nosed out at the finish on a lucky gust) so I finished in 3rd. I think that's my standard finish for this event, but who's keeping track? It was a waaarrm day and I drank my entire cannister of water in about one gulp at the finish.
