Monday 2nd May 2016

If you don't like the weather in England, wait 10 minutes. Isn't that what they say? As we arrived at the Club the windscreen wipers were fully employed and the car doors threatened to tear from their hinges.
By start time, 18.30, it was all sunshine and gentle breeze!! But, half way up the beat to Hutchins, the weather gods reminded us that they were still in attendance and the decision to carry genoas was re-thought. By the time Hutchins was reached the wind had swung into the West so spinnakers were often on the wrong side. Most crews managed a quick gybe or a pre-buoy rounding switch, we didn't, and couldn't gybe until nearing Brownsea. Two reaches later and we followed the fleet round Northshore Homes for beat number two, to Morris Lane off Poole YC. Madeleine led the way with Crackerjack doing well to keep in contention. Flying Colours, having been caught trailing at the start and having difficulty with her jib halliard, did well to recover to third just pipping Wijit at the end.
