A bit delayed… but blame the social secretary!
Race report written by new crew Jed Rogers.
Crews Race - 14th July 2022
Thursday night’s Crews race saw an excellent turnout of 11 boats for a highly active race in the glorious sunshine. The race consisted of many laps of a windward-leeward course with PSC as the windward mark and the laid orange as the bottom mark, passing through the gate (KB to the committee boat).
The wind was 8-12 kts from a strange northerly, providing many tricky shifts but flat water for the crews.
Congratulations to Z74 for the win and leading from the first leg. Closely followed by Z67 who gained two places to finish second. In third place was Z77 who were shortly behind with a gap of 14 seconds.
A special thanks to Stretch for organising the race, it turned out to be perfect conditions for a superb evening of racing with the largest start this year out in the Solent.
The social committee organised pizzas for some dehydrated sailors from local restaurant abarbistro to accompany the post-race social in Portsmouth Sailing Club.
The final results were:
Z74 - Helmed by Adrian (Crews Will and Tom)
Z67 - Helmed by Munch (Crew Joppers)
Z77 - Helmed by David W (Crew Hugh and Jules)
