Pursuit race, course: G – port, K -port, F – starboard, C – starboard, A – starboard
The wind eased a bit after the boats took to the water but everyone had a good start. The Solo’s first, followed by the enterprise and at last the Laser. The Solo’s managed to keep together closely followed by Malcolm and Becci. With some boats trying to change the pattern by taking a different tack it was not always easy to determine who would be arriving at a mark first. Plenty of tactical sailing up to a mark and shouts of ‘water’, pushing boats out while trying to overtake etc. meant that the race was exciting from start to finish. Only in the last lap, where Tony missed a mark and had to return did we started to see some distance between each boat. Becci called ‘water’ at G to get space from Nick only to lose the advantage by drifting into the mark (i swear the mark is magnetic).
A good night of sailing was had.
Results: 1. Malcolm, 2. Nick, 3. Becci, 4. Sally, 5. Tony W
