2016 US EC-12 Nationals Day 1

Boots has had a series of boat issues that has mired him in Bronze Fleet all day.

JW had a second in the seeding race and then moved backwards to Bronze Fleet and then back to Silver. JW has got the boat going and if not for a number of stupid errors resulting in penalty turns might be solidly in the Gold Fleet.

The wind is quite heavy and rain and lightning held up the sailing for an hour.

Hope for better results tomorrow.
