2 hours delay waiting for the fog to clear and the wind to fill but then a fairly frantic start along with a shortened course.  Just managed to get the headsail set and the spinnaker ready for a decent start at the pin end of the line.  Tight spinnaker leg to the Warner which started off pretty well but we seemed to be get ahead of the wind with the rest of the fleet closing us down.  Made quite a bit back when we managed to get  the right side of a big container ship and avoided the associated wind shadow.  2nd leg to Darling Associates and tried the kite initially but it was too tight.  Final leg to Flying Fish which again was a good sheets eased leg but with the tide building the smaller boats got us on handicap even though we were 4th on the water.
