4 / 1st among "Fast 40s"th (out of 6)
(out of 35)
4th in ORC Class B. There were six races over two days. We had a "race within the race" versus "Interlodge", a very fast Botin 44 sailed very well and in excellent condition. It came down to the last race which we managed to win by three seconds. Conditions ranged from light to medium breeze. There was a breezier day of racing in the Around the Island Race on Friday - scored separately. Our class was composed of three TP52s and three "Fast 40s". The three 52s took top three positions. It's nearly impossible to beat those boats on corrected time as their rating is so advantageous. Even after beating a 52 to the top mark, they still corrected out ahead of us. For fair racing, would be nice to see them in their own class.
