Race Report – Sunday 5th May 2019

Sunday’s racing started with seven Flying 15 hitting the start line with 12 knots of wind from the north. The first race saw many position changes up the first leg, with 4027 leading a closely bunched fleet around the top mark. More close racing ensured but 4027 covered the fleet and went on to win, followed by 3563 and then 3341.

The second race started with one recall (3563 with helm and crew swapping) and 4027 being squeezed out of the line. Despite similar conditions to race 1, the fleet spread out with 4011 taking a commanding lead, followed by 3725 (welcome back to the Hall’s after their winter hibernation) and 4027 just holding off 3341 for third place. The second race also saw the Wright Swimming Cup being award to Alastair (sailing as crew) who tried hiking the boat flat on a three sail reach without using the hiking straps … splash.
