Windy Wednesday night

These photos were from the last Royal Vancouver Yacht Club PHRF Wednesday night beer can race of the season in Vancouver BC. The breeze was a steady 20-25 kts+ with a high gust of 40 kts and big swells. We needed to get around the race course in order to win the series so we sailed... very conservatively with a reefed main and #3. High speed as measured by an on board GPS watch was slightly over 10 knots. Most of the fleet stayed at the dock. Four boats started in our class and two of them collided (only minor damage) and retired. We had a great time and did not break anything!
