RMYC Thursday 26th April 2018

And so the new J24 season starts at the Royal Motor. It is good to be back. Now I am on board Crackerjack with the Butters family and foredeck man James.
On a cold and blustery Thursday evening we were joined by Wijt and Flying Colours as we were set a course into Studland Bay around Challys as the windward mark. Crackerjack took up the early running but Flying Colours were the first around the buoy. They held on almost to the finish but a small mistake with a spinnaker hoist and Andrew Hill's Wijt took advantage and squeezed over the finish line by a mere 8 seconds. Crackerjack followed a further 7 seconds, into third.
