Note Crew: Amanda Bolle Stephen Quick. Short Course to Port-of-Call Marina. Set up the boat with full main and #3 headsail. Close hauled course up to Aylmer marina and was able to ease sails a bit afterwards. Very shifty winds with too much west in it. From Aylmer up to Port-of-Call Marina the winds were extremely shifty and kept the trimmers busy. A couple of nice round-ups from the 20+kn gusts when the helm didn't feather early enough to offset the full mainsail. On the return leg, we thought about doing a headsail change as we were underpowered. That feeling passed once we got hit Aylmer Island and the bigger waters of Lac Deschenes, as we finished off the course with about 35 minutes of 6-7kn of broad reaching with the occasional 8kn surf on some decent waves.
