Race # 5 was a tough race for MARTHA and her crew, light winds and a true windward/leeward course.
This was the first race that we flew both kites “the spinaker and the golliker,” the crew did a great job of sail changes and gybing both sails. A wind hole opened up near the tower by Marrowstone Island and we had a time of it trying to make it back to the finish.
16 boats sailed in race 5 MARTHA crossed the line in 9th place and corrected to 5th.
Race #6 was just as light with a 30 minute race postponement. MARTHA had a great start and kept the momentum going all the way to finish, 15 boats participated and MARTHA finished 5th and corrected to 4th.
SO after 6 races MARTHA is tied with PEGASUS with nine points and the next boat is SIROCCO with 20 points. All and all we are proud of MARTHA and her OCEAN crew members for a job well done.
It is also stunning to have MARTHA tied with PEGASUS a modern ultralight race boat.
