Wednesday night racing resumes at HBYC

10-15 kts SSW, a flat sea, and slightly cold conditions saw a small fleet turn out for the start of the Summer Season. Amongst them Faraway, Savannah, Quest and JML-3.

JML-3 launched a very spirited start, leading the first two legs even against Faraway, before the giant overhauled them and disappeared! But the L-26 had a lot of crew aboard, and was very fast on the beats. They also flew their bag off the wind and generally gave it their all. This was a truly great spirit and apparently good viewing from the club. The finishing order was closer than usual, with Quest following Savannah over the line by a mere eight seconds.

Results on RCYC PHRF ratings showed:

1 Quest
2 JML-3
3 Faraway
4 Savannah
