As Lily was not competing last night I do not have a report on the race, however here are the results and well done to Ken on Incantation in the NHC Class. If anyone can write a bit of a narative that would great... Since you won Ken how about a story from Incantation.
More videos will be available when I get back from the ISORA race this weekend.

From the start Lily and Carpe Diem lead the field on the breakwater side of the start line, Carpe Diem flying her kite from the approach to the start keeping up with Lily until Lily’s spinnaker hoist was complete.

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.
