David Brief takes the spoils on the First day of the season and the “Start of Season Trophy”. 11 boats took to the water with a southerly F3/4 allowing the trapeze boats to get planning upwind. With a good tide running a few were caught out at the windward mark, including Phil in his contender in race 1 and that probably cost him a third. The Shadow or David and Rs800 of Jamie and Tamsin comfortably took 1st and 2nd in both races. The next 4 places in both races were much closer with Chris edging out the rest for 3rd in both races. The fleet decided that 2 races were enough and headed back in for a well earned rest. Thanks to Richard, Doug and Chris for a great days racing….
