Good Way managed a second place finish in cruising (17 boats I think in division) (30 seconds out of first) in this years DDR. Quite exciting with lots of action, both on the course and on VHF :D I have to say the F35 P anywhere downwind is incredible. In 27-30 knts tws we had zero roundups with full main- thanks to quick vang work at the opportune moments - crew of three. Asymmetrical did well and we took it in when breeze hit above 15 kts aws flew the asymmetrical about 1/4 of the time. Had main only 1/2 time. Top speed 10 kts and lots of time at 8.5-9 Time of 8 hrs and some few minutes …

Tom,

Congrats! Eight hours...that thar's some work.

Can imagine some epic speed runs considering the conditions. We've been monitoring the wind, as it has been a long while since taking SweeTART out under sail.
