Tuesday 4th August

It was a dull night but that should not have mattered because there was wind.  Although it held no firm view regarding strength or direction.  Only three Garelochs came to the starting line.  People are on holiday and Thia’s Michael Knox was Race Officer. He sent us on a beat to B, off Silvers.  Wind near the mark was especially trying, but nothing compared to the run across the loch to G.  Thalia rounded close behind Catriona and soon took the lead.  There was a moment immediately after wind was directly aft that the racing flag indicated we were head to wind.  Thalia was caught in a puff and broached whilst Catriona, nearby, was hardly moving.

Catriona retook the lead shortly after the leeward mark and made sure of covering thereafter.

1 Catriona, 2 Thalia, 3 Hermes.
