2nd – Blue Beat
3rd – Eye Spy

Race report from Eye Spy:
Well………the day turned out as the forecast predicted. Light winds and big tides.

I have Lisa and Scottish Duncan on board today. The course is a circuit around Beachhaven, laid south orange and the start buoy x 3. A poor start saw us well behind Blue beat and we were not able to close the gap to windward. At the top mark we threw the kite up but a lack of wind meant there was no real advantage over Blue Beat who was without a kite. Firsty soon passed us and then took Blue Beat as well.

I reckon if we made a list of all the f*ck-ups we could make on a windward leeward course, we could tick them all off!! Not one of our best……..and a very dirty bottom.

All things considered……..third wasn’t a bad result. Twas a great afternoon on the water.

Thanks to my crew and to Nigel in the tower.
