Banderas Bay Regatta RACE 1

Nine years later we are back in Banderas Bay again and racing Meshach in the BBR.  Thor has been thinking about this for probably just as long.  The idea of racing our home made me feel a little nervous but it was fun to see how well we did against boast that were decades younger than us substantially more modern.  I must say that Meshach  Rocks!  The  original design and forward thinking of the builder and a lot of recent TLC (aka 6 week haul out turned 4 years lol) has made some amazing improvements to this boat.  It was a fun time racing old and new friends as well. The first day of racing was crewed by Thor Tanya, Tristan (7) Max (7) Ethan from S/V  Eyoni and Andy from M/Y Tully.  Race results are posted in the link for all Thor's racing friends at home , but the short version is Meshach  was over the line early... due to color blindness of the starting mark actually the guys didn't follow the direction... What is  it with guys and directions  ha ha ha ... but even after a restart we placed  1st  in race one..
