Autumn Series Act 3

From the prom conditions looked challenging with the sea looking rather ‘lumpy’. However with a warm F4 SW-erly, enthusiasm was high so we all got on with it and launched. Race one saw a few casualties, Phil A (Contender) retiring with a centreboard problem and Dave & John(400) heading home early after the gennaker sheet untied itself and an attempt to re-tie it didn’t work well! Jamie & Tamsin (800) led the pack to take second place on corrected time with the 500 sailed by Phil H & Keith showing good pace to take top spot. In race two Jamie & Tamsin stormed ahead building up a good lead to take top spot with Nick, this week sailing his Phantom showing good pace upwind to finish second. In the final race the 800 ‘s gennaker parted company with the bowsprit ending their day, Nick crossed the finish line first to take the win with the 500 second. Thanks to the race team for an excellent race line which with wind across tide is not always easy to do and a splendid days sailing…….well for those who managed to last longer than the first race !
