Well I always had fun whenever we raced and that one race was a hoot. I felt like the cat that swallowed the canary when I finally spotted the mark. None of us could believe we didn't have any binoculars aboard!
Because we rounded the mark, EVERYONE had to turn around, sail back from wherever they were and round the mark too. We were in stitches on our boat laughing at all the very serious looks on the skipper's faces as we sailed by them going the opposite direction. A few good-natured fists were displayed, albeit some with extended fingers ... as we sailed off for the win. :)
Later that evening at the Halloween party, one or two people approached our table wanting to know who the culprit was who spotted the marker, causing everyone to have to turn back. My teammates were very gracious, and didn't out me. We just all pointed at each other.
