Toot, as the five minute hooter went. Four minutes later it was go! I pulled my main sheet in and I was going up to the first mark. I was coming first round the first mark. Kapash! as a wave hits the bow. The second mark was harder to get to. I got to the mark and sailed around it. Once I got to the the last mark it was blowing at least twenty five knots. I finally got to the finish line. I headed to the slipway and finally I was on shore.
