A glorious warm, sunny, breezy day. The course was set for 3 anticlockwise laps of Fairway, Outer, Inner with a final port turn around Fairway. Conditions were pretty good with a steadily building F4-5 S veering SW, although it was heavy going at times on the upwind leg from Inner to Fairway. Three laps was hard-work but satisfying and the race time was within our usual target or 1.5 to 2 hours. Despite a slow start dealing with technical issues, Richard and Justin made short work moving up through the fleet and beating the other 2 F18s convincingly. But it was Ken, single handing his Dart 18 and finishing just a few seconds behind Steve and Jennie (Dart 18) who took 1st place on handicap.
Note: Results were corrected under Club Sailing Instructions Part 1 4.6 due to a time-keeping error. After consulting with the OOD and other competitors the previously reported winners, Richard and Justin, graciously accepted the corrected time.
