The tower caught Coraline’s eye, and the breeze transported her. She was aboard the Wind Gypsy once again flying for the finish line.

Thirty-three boats started, but as they reached the windward mark three had distinguished themselves as contenders. The spinnaker launched with a satisfying snap. They dropped and secured the genoa as the bow blasting through a swell. Wind Gypsy trailed Lady Zoom and Wave Bye Bye in a fight that was theirs to win. Coraline loved this crew. Joyous laughter skipped across the waves as they sat folded over the port rail. Winning was only half the fun.


Keep on writing.
