Competition to Leeward

These two boats to leeward are our main competition -- the Nonsuch is leading the series and the Freedom is always in the fight, but has trouble sailing to its rating. I sail on a nice old wooden 8 meter and we are a bit erratic, but have had a good start this season with a 1st and 2nd.
