This Sunday 19th June is a "Special" Race Day. So what is so special about it all you ask? Well there will be a mixture of Pursuit and Handicap races. The day will start with a Pursuit Race at 11:00 with a twist that it will be a LeMans start. You may hold your boats to the shore but are not allowed in them until your class start. After Lunch there will be three short races lasting only 15 mins over a short course so should be about 4 laps per race. Then the final race at approx 2:30 will be another Pursuit Race. This time however personal handicaps will be used based on the results of the races so far to set individual start times. To add a little more spice to the overall results you will be able to discard your worst result from the first 4 races and the final Personal Handicap Pursuit Race will be like the Medal race in the Olymics and will score double points and have to be counted.
There will be a briefing at 10:30 to explain how the day will work.
See you all on Sunday

The first race only saw the 2 Solo's finish in testing conditions with Pat Overs winning with Andy Anderson in 2nd place. The 2nd race started after lunch but with everyone very tired after the 1st race the Single Handed Fleet was reduced. After 40 mins there was only Bobby Martin still sailing so the race officer sensibly decided to abandon the race.
So that left the results from race 1 to provide the overall scores which gave Pat Overs the Solo Cup and the Single Handed Cup not awarded.
David New took the following photos to give you an idea of the conditions.
