Back in early yesterday from the second RORC offshore race on the J109, a succesful race with 50% of the crew being new. Now standing 3rd overall in class. Great thing is despite both races being fairly breezy at times, and a return delivery leg in heavy seas a fortnight ago the yacht maintenance and race preparation is paying off... only breakages being a small tear in the main due to the known feeder problem nicely fixed by North, a broken block on the Harken spinnaker which took a fair amount of snatch loading... oh and the skippers mug handle! Back over today to do some cleaning and valeting.
