Race 3 17th December

With a WSW wind 12kt gusting up to 18kt at the start of the race the 3 yachts were all out early for the 13:50 revised start time to avoid clashing with the ferry schedule. Lily got a bit out of place in the melee around the Porth Y Felin moorings and started behind the two J’s but got a reasonably good spinnaker hoist taking advantage of the dead downwind leg out of the harbour. The two J’s bore away to facilitate their asymmetrics but with the winds gusting as the racers approached the Aluminium Jetty they all suffered broaches with Lily heading horribly close to the jetty and still on starboard pole! At the very last minute Lily’s crew managed to release the pole and drop the spinnaker but, having just got back to within spitting distance of the other two yachts, lost a lot of time in the subsequent broach.

Race 2 Sunday 12th November

Looking at the weather forecast for tomorrow I note a VERY windy day! I am anticipating that there will be no race... 
 
For this Sunday's race 12th November we are hoping for 4 yachts to be taking part, weather permitting... The race start has been brought forward to 11:00 due to circumstances beyond Nigel's control.... See you all then.

Race 1 Sunday 5th November

Only 2 yachts out on Sunday for the first November race of 2017. Lily suffering from a maintenance issue on both the ship and the Skipper... The two J boats took part in a windy event with northwesterly winds gusting up to 30kt. 
 
Here is a quick report from Cogger on Sunday's race.
Langdon and back 2 reefs in main we flew little kite in big seas although the wind did drop later. The start was delayed until 14:30 when there was a steady 28kt!
