Sunday 3rd March - Boat Handling Fleet Race Sailing at CMYC
Five boats took to the water for a fleet race. Anil was OOD & his race was inspired by the title on the course board from Saturday. "Boat Handling Race”.
The race was started later than normal as we waited for the wind to start blowing. This allowed the boats to tackle the winding course Anil had plotted. It was a fun sail with a different finish. Once the stern of the boat crossed the finishing line the race was concluded only when the boat successfully sailed backwards over the finishing line. This proved to be quite a challenge but all boats achieved it in the end.
Anil & Michelle won the race. Toby & Mini were the best at the backwards sailing & were runners up!! They were followed by Fergus & Val then Richard & PJ. Unfortunately Ernst could not complete the course.
Food was shared & live music (from “Elvis”) listened to after the results were announced by Jon.
Well done to Anil & Michelle & thanks to Anil for the course and fun sailing & to everyone for joining in.
