Friday Evening Racing with Greg Wilkinson

Quick, wrap things up at the office and head to Marblehead for Friday Evening Racing!

Sailing Instruction Summary (unofficial!):

  • 3-minute dinghy starts

  • If RC flies a green flag during your sequence, go to the green windward mark – otherwise, orange marks
