Race #2 9th August
A stiff northerly wind greeted the 8 yachts as they prepared for the start. With Craig setting the non standard course of Clipera, Penrhos, Meath, Penrhos, Meath and finish the skippers checked and rechecked the course over channel 37... From the start the wind conditions were very gusty causing overpowering and then lulls making the yachts, in close proximity, to slew about. Soon after the start Houdini lead from Madam Wen with Lily and Just Enough swapping places.

Race 4 26th July 2017
A brilliant start by Lily saw her first to the nuckle where her spinnaker hoist keept her ahead of the fleet all the way to Bolivar in F4 to F5 southwesterly winds. From Bolivar Houdini, as usual, made better to windward in strengthening winds and overtook Lily while Just Enough, with her reefed main, battled to overhaul Lily. Lily slowed to put in a reef on her main allowing Just Enough to get well clear. Incantation and Carpe Diem were having their usual dual and Flying Dragon was catching up to Lily; eventually overtaking her on the leg from Penrhos to Clipera. On this penultimate leg a major storm was developing with a huge dark cloud mass moving from west to east across the bay with thunder and lightning in the distance. Wind speeds suddenly increased and as Lily attempted to reef her genoa it split along a seam forcing her to retire and motor in head on into the harbour. Just Enough had similar problems and also retired.
