Yes
Of course first lap I'm freaking out because I can't find the turn buoy.

They were dialed in. That bouy had to slow them down 5-10 mph.

Here is a Quick video of them running the boat. I did not have a lot of time so I just grabbed a couple random videos.

Looking good! Either you did a good job of keeping the sponsons balanced, or the boat is dialed in well. The other teams better watch out after you guys get a little seat time in and get the turns down like you want them.

My wife got all the turns and put this together. Some sucked, a few were good.

Lap 6 and 8 was pretty good
Lap 12 we saw Billy hit a big one and you can see us sail on the backside

Lots to learn for sure.
