Getting ready for Southern Straights Yacht race

I am getting ready for Southern Straights yacht race.  Southern Straights is a keel boat distance race hosted by the West Vancouver yacht Club.

I am racing on the medium course, which starts at Dunderave Pier on the north shore.  We then race up to the Sisters Island light, about 50 Miles West and then back to finish off Point Atkinson. I am sailing on a Beneteau 36.7 called "ClaraALEGRO".  The start is the morning of Friday the 27th at 1030 and we expect to finish Saturday before lunch.

The race can be followed from the following link:
