Seven boats turned out for a pursuit race on this fine warm, sunny, and at times breezy summers day. The staggered start began with a south to north transit of the club start line, followed by marks at NW Sinah (most southerly green channel marker in Langstone Harbour), Roway Wreck, and Fairway, making for a very elongated triangle course with 1 upwind and 2 downwind legs. The F3-4 was patchy and quite light in the channel where the turning high tide was a significant factor. The Dart 18s finished by a comfortable margin with Steve and Jennie taking and holding the lead with just 10 minutes remaining of the 90 minute race. There was a battle for 3rd and 4th place but generally most boats finished in the same order that they started.
Many thanks to Ron and Paul for doing safety boat duty.
