C600 race report

Half the fleet retired and unfortunately this included us.
Exceptionally strong trade winds with 4m seas meant it should have been a good race for us and after 23 hrs we had sailed 230 miles and were looking good. Beating up to St Maartens in over 30kts we went to the 2nd reef which broke and in the short time it took the team to get the main back in control we had more damage to the sail than I could successfully repair at sea. The strong winds continued for most of the race with over 50 kts at times off Guadeloupe, an area known for its wind shadow.
All the team survived intact and enjoyed themselves. There were several injuries during the race and one Catamaran overturned.
