It turned out the Xena was not pulling out either; she was just changing down their jib.
Anyway Barry and I battled through the gusts to an unexpectedly enjoyable race.
On one leg coming back from Hen & Chicken Bay around Cabarita we were passed by Axis of Evil with their spinnaker up going as fast as I’ve ever seen them go. They could not hide their delight as they carved through the swells.
The scratch finish was, 1 Farrago, 2 Snow Goose and, 3 Xena and that’s the way the handicap places went too. A great race, and our apologies to Snow Goose for the confusing signals.
