2013 CORK 49erFX Champions!

Today we sealed the deal!
Results: http://www.cork.org/past-results/results2013/OCR/49FXTBL.html

We had three medal races that counted for double points (1st = 2 pts, 2nd = 4 pts, etc.). We won the first and third medal races and got 4th in the one between. This solidified our 1st place win!
Conditions were crazy – the theater style course was just ten minutes long with lines of buoys marking boundaries. The wind was 12-14 knots but the chop was the hard part. Waves were bouncing back against the sea wall which made for a bumpy course!
