Second instalment of the sprint series. (think first one was abandoned).
Splendid sailing conditions, sunshine, flat sea, an easing Ebb tide and a warm, mainly Westerly F2-4, but with some big shifts varying from WNW and WSW
In race one conditions seemed to suit David (Shadow X) who powered away from the chasing pack of dinghies. Phil and Lorna (400) worked the first half of the beat well to lead Richard and guest crew Will (400). Apart from David who was almost a lap ahead, the fleet remained closely packed with Richard and Will crossing the line just ahead of Steve (D-One) .
David continued his good form in the second, race but this time Jamie and Tamsin (800)were in close pursuit. In the shifty conditions Richard and Will managed to break free of the following pack who remained closely packed with less than 20 seconds between them after the first lap and all crossing the finishing line within 50 seconds of each other.
The final race of the day saw David get close and personal with the committee boat allowing the others to lead. Nick (Phantom) with perhaps a some divine guidance giving the shifty conditions, worked the shifts just right to lead for most of the race crossing the line just behind the 800 but ahead the rest of the fleet.
