The wind that was forecast appeared to be on hold, perhaps for another occasion. As lulls developed, so courses were duly modified. An optimistic course B included mark #5 with a further beat up to #7, which was replaced by OW, and later substituted for #4, with a leg across to OW, and the finish shortened to 4/8. Hence, start OB/1-7-OW-OB-0-5-7-OW-OB-0-Fin 5/OR, gradually boiled down to OB/1-4-OW-OB-0-4-8-OB-0-Fin 4/8.

A spread of race winners across the sharp end of the fleet reflects some close racing, with MC's #169 who held onto three seconds, places that is, clinching the day's win. A great start to the series, even if a few of us either grounded, picked up fin-flotsam, or hooked an anchor rope, soon to be released by two passing yachts, thus sparing the lifeboat coxswain a trip out.

This virtual one-cat's paw-clapping may go to....................

1st Place - #169 MC, 2nd - #03 RH, 3rd - #85 TR.
