Gloomy skies, a light drizzle, a strong outgoing tide and a weak Southwesterly welcomed the six sailors at the start of the twilight race.
Marut who was doing her best to stay close to the start line was 5 seconds too early and was caught on the course side. The light breeze that was present at the start line was enough for the fleet to inch slowly towards Squance.
With a little more wind coming in at Squance, Waka Tere kept her lead and rounded ahead of Minx who was following closely behind her. However, Minx sailed well and managed to past Waka Tere and crossed the finish line to take 1st place in the IRC class.
Unfortunate for Southern Light she found herself sailing alone in the Club Racer A division. Come on guys let get out and keep James company, hope to see more boats on water.
Marut had a good run and managed to stay ahead in the Club Racer B division. Unfortunately, his 12 seconds lead at the finish wasn’t enough to claim his position after corrected time. Brio sailed well to close the gap and took 1st place after corrected time. Due to the poor wind conditions had forced Nevis to retired from the race.
