Results are attached. As so often happens, the wind died as the evening progressed so early starters had a distinct advantage and were able to round Buoy 2 to carry the flood stream up to Cargreen to finish Course D. Congratulation to Rob Stebbing for whizzing around the course in 43 minutes and whilst the rest of use were ages astern. Sadly three boats had to retire as they could not make much headway to windward against the flood stream and light winds to get round the dreaded Buoy 2. It looks like the handicap for David Wheatley’s STRATOS has topped out.

Probably best to go for a short course so I have selected Course D. Start on the NEAL POINT BUOY line 1800-1830 and finish on the Cargreen Line.
Debateable whether an early start with stronger wind will be better than a later start with less flood stream for the leg from SKI to No 2 then E TAMAR S?
Congratulations to David Wheatley in his Laser Stratos who just beat Andrew Butcher in AELEA by 1min 43s. Marc in BUFFIN started rather late and consequently had a dying wind and little tidal stream to coast him to the finish.
Next event is on Wednesday 22 May so put it in your diaries now. Hopefully we will have a bigger turn out!
