Nice steady spring breeze rolled in to Albert Park Lake just before the race. With a Starboard course the question of how to tackle the island/entrance to the narrows is a tricky one. It seems that there was better wind towards the island rather than out near the entrance to the narrows.
At present the weed is growing near the powerhouse retarding basin, which gives you even more reason to stay out in the middle of the narrows than hugging the wall.
Still trying to get the hang of setting the sail on the impulse, especially downwind. I suspect I have to be more aggressive with the boat to compensate for the weight difference.
