a beam reach
I'm not a racer so I don't really know, but I suspect the EC sailors (and kayakers with sails) might be happy with the forecast for the start of the race Saturday. Wind out of the east about 12-14 mph. Above is the boat Dawn Patrol crewed by DanceswithSandyBottom and SOS in the North Carolina Challenge. They'll be teaming up again for the EC.
I can tell you from our experiences on the Tag Team trip that Dawn Patrol, a Core Sound 20, is a fast boat on just about any point of sail. And that was just with main and mizzen. In the photo below she has a third sail up, I think SOS told me it was called a fisherman.
Just how many sails can you put up on that boat?
