Monday 19th June 2017

Whilst the majority of the J24 fleet were enjoying Kiel Week four home loving crews were greeted by a gentle SE breeze which was threatening to become a zephyr. Wijit, Zaphod and Jobs for the Buoys set off for Bell race mark along the North Channel whilst us, the maverick youngsters, decided to visit Brownsea.
At first the tactic looked bad, then really good, and then we sailed into a hole, allowing all the others to pass. Zaphod rounded first.
The zephyr now turned to glass with the occasional puff. Each boat had her turn at the head of the fleet, as countless gybes were performed. Eventually Wijit took line honours from Jobs fir the Buoys leaving Zaphod to lead Vinyl Solutions across the line.
