Sun 25th Aug

On the water Race Officer Iain MacGillivray had trouble choosing a course as wind changed direction.  It was blowing from the Shandon shore so that a start to windward was not possible.  Iain settled on a short course to C, at the north end of Clynder, and back.  Teal had the best position on the starting line but Catriona somehow got away, despite being slow with her spinnaker.

Off Clynder, the water was like a mirror but oddly there was sufficient steady current of air to make significant progress.  Catriona was round first from teal, the rest rather further back.

The wind had veered to make the return leg a fetch.  Spinnakers could be set to begin with.  A short tack was needed at the end on account of variable wind off the Shandon shore.  There was a second round but no changes of place.

1 Catriona, 2 Teal, 3 Dione, 4 Ceres, 5 Halcyone.
