Unfortunately, Madeleine and Pheonix incorrectly negotiated the Northshore beacon and subsequently retired, Easy Tiger fell foul of the training bank and one or two others touched bottom in Shell Bay.
After our initial euphoria, on board Vinyl Solutions, of making a decent beat, a speedy spinnaker hoist, and an good run, we found ourselves on the wrong side of the incoming Condor ferry and tired ourselves out on the countless tacks, culminating of sitting and waiting for the Chain Ferry to leave Studland.
However, I was told we had scored a finish "on the water" so we accepted that (as, I believe, did Easy Tiger)
Congratulations to those who made the finish line at the Box.
I think this was the final positions, but PLEASE let me know if I am wrong.
