Today lived up to its reputation as Friday being the "best day" at the Western Challenge. A group of about 50 DNs had a relaxing day of racing. There may have been 10 or so races. The ice was described as "slow" with a styrofoam surface. Luckily the wind was enough to keep everyone moving. Quite a few fast sailors and smiling faces in the pits late in the afternoon. NEIYA Commodore T was the fastest guy out there today. Racing starts tomorrow at 11 AM.
