(blunted*), starting from "Zero" mark/#1, taking in 5 and 'Arrow's Orange' buoy inshore of 8, downwind to zero then 1(*the blunt end), to finish through the 8-AO's transit line. After four heats, the virtual blunt triangle was flattened to a rectangle, replacing 5 with 8 for both laps. As the breeze got up following the break, the racing gathered in pace and intensity. Well done to all for staying the course.

Good show to the morning's top three: 1st Place - JB on the helm of #002, 2nd Place - CS with #162, and 3rd Place - RD sailing #94.
