What a superb day we had :). A surprisingly consistent robust wind from the West – backing SW at times – enabled the twelve of you who came to race to have a very enjoyable time in the sunshine and on the water. It was great to see Jake Jones back on the water, taking the opportunity to join us away from his academic study, and even better to see him decide to join the Race.
As we have done in the past, here is a video of the start as viewed from Race Hut and a second video with view from the pontoon (Thanks to one of Peter Wagner’s fan club! Ed.) . Here is also another short clip showing three boats running downwind towards Mark D and then reaching across to Mark J and tacking back up the lake to cross the Start/Finish line.
(The purpose of posting videos is to enable each of you to see what you did versus your competition and work out if you might have done something different – where you started along the line or where you decided to tack or if you perhaps gave too much space at a Mark (if you didn’t have to according to the 3 boat length rule)? The boats and their sail numbers are all shown
below with the Result. Ed.)
