An evening of light wind. The course was one of the shortest possible, to A off the club and back.
Tide was flooding so that a compromise was needed on the windward leg to A. Closer to shore, less adverse tide but even lighter air.
Thalia made the best start but Catriona, with guest helm Thad Burr, maintained boat speed and soon took the lead.
We managed two rounds as wind lightened even more. The final leg to the finish was spent teasing the spinnaker to fill. If the tide had been against us here, we should still be out there.
1 Catriona, 2 Thalia, 3 Ceres, 4 Hermes.
