Results Cawsand (Outbound & Return)

Six boats turned out for the Cawsand White Sail Challenge with most taking around 3½  hours to sail to Cawsand via the many twists and turns inserted in the route by the sailing instructions.  On corrected time Andrew Butcher in AELEA completed the challenge first, followed by David Wheatley in STRATOS in 2nd position then Martin Worth in SPARKS in 3rd place.  Mike Sissons in ROATAN ISLE and James Jermain in ECHO brought up the rear in 4th and 5th places respectively.  Sadly Jill and Clare in DEN NJORD found the combination of tidal stream and light wind too much to round the Lyhner entrance buoy and retired, but pressed on under engine to join the rest of the group in Cawsand for lunch.
 
Picnic lunches were taken at anchor except for David Wheatley and crew in STRATOS who opted to beach their boat at Cawsand and proceed ashore for fish and chips (and possibly a pint or two).
 
Boats then got underway to start the return leg at Queens Ground buoy at 1600, taking the flood stream up to Cargreen.  The specified route incorporated rather fewer twists and turns so boats were able to complete this leg in around 1½ hours.
 
Handicaps were adjusted after the outbound leg according to the standard White Sail Challenge formula, and used to calculate the results for the return leg.  On this basis Martin Worth in SPARKS completed the return leg in shortest corrected time, ahead of James Jermain in ECHO by just over a minute, with AELEA and ROATAN ISLE in 3rd and 4th places.  Possibly weighed down by a surfeit of fish and chips, David Wheatley brought his STRATOS home in uncharacteristic 5th place!  DEN NJORD had a train to catch so departed early but was credited with a Did Not Finish (DNF) score for the return leg.
