Race report from Eye Spy:
Racing back from Motohui today and I have Mark and Natalie on board.
Mark cooked us a awesome breakfast and we listened to the Rugby to get ourselves in the right frame of mind to race back to Taikata. Go the ABs. Six gun Justice had to leave early which meant Elan had a lonely start at 1000hrs. Satisfaction and Blue Beat were next to go at 1019hrs followed closely by Eye Spy at 1022hrs. The wind was around 20knts on the nose so we had some work to do. Elan was too far ahead for us to see so we concentrate on the two boats just in front. We passed Blue Beat around Bean Rock and appeared to be catching Satisfaction as well. Phil seemed to get a second wind and turned the speed up. By the time we got to the bridge we could see Elan and she may be catchable. Satisfaction managed to get passed him just before the line and took the race.
Satisfaction first then Elan, Eye Spy and Blue Beat. The first three boats finishing with in a couple of minutes seems to suggest the handicaps were pretty darn good eh.
Well done to the other three all sailing single handed. A fairly tough day at the office.
