Monday 4th July

Blustery, overcast, but a fun race in cool conditions. Duncan McCarthy joined us on board Vinyl Solutions to add a bit of class to the proceedings, whilst Ben Purrier took the helm. 
Despite a poor start, and only 4 on board, Jolly Roger proved their mettle to finish 2nd behind Hitchhiker who stormed away never to be caught. Andrew Hill's Wijit also had their problems with recalcitrant spinnaker sheets but recovered to an excellent 3rd. There were many place changes throughout the race as the fleet negotiated the strong incoming tide whilst paying particular attention to Stoney corner. Sadly Easy Tiger were unable to finish due to a wrapped spinnaker.
I made a note to myself at the end, to remain in the cockpit. The bruises will take a little while to disappear.
