The team aboard committee boat “A̶\1; had worked out the initial kinks and today things worked quite smoothly aboard, despite some difficult finishes. I was at the flags again so there are no start pictures, but I did work the finish line and have most of the boats doing at least one if not both finishes. The pictures are in alphabetical order by boat name and then in chronological order for each yacht.
