One big take-away from racing this year was how to position yourself on the race course in light air conditions. Many times in light air the fleet "sucks the air" out of the middle of the course, so staying on the edges of the course pays off. This was true for the Hospice Regatta, as well as the J/24 District Championships in Oswego. As long as you stuck to the left or right side of the course, you did pretty well. But if you tried to go to one side, then decided the other side of the course was better, you got killed crossing the course. Pick a side and stick to it in light air course racing.
