Race 1: We were in 3rd. 2nd weather mark. Jibing at mark – went for jibe, and I released the old backstay. It was a sucker jibe where the boom did not go across, and went back out to where it was. Well- you need a backstay, and the rig fell down. Not good. new one in – spare that we were training on fortunately. It is quick, but perhaps not as quick. Light air forecast for rest of week.
