Race 4 23rd May
Well that wasn't the expected weather! Thick fog greeted the participants for the 4 th May race. However OOD Wendy Argyle had selected course 3 and we were duly despatched to Bolivar as our first mark of the course. For the second week Lily hovering near the breakwater got an excellent start with Just Enough and Madam Wen both flying asymmetrical spinnakers from the start and by the knuckle these 2 had overtaken Lily At the nuckle Lily hoisted her kite and said close to the wall out to the light house. The tide was now on the final 3rd of the flood and the current was flowing strongly approx 1kt from the North West down toward Cymyran Strait.
