Sunday 8th July Sailing at CMYC - OOD Mohan - America's Cup and Fleet Race
The America's Cup was sailed for and 5 boats took to the water to sail for this Over The Line Trophy. Mohan being the closest to an American at the Club was OOD and set the course for the race in light winds.
He was however disqualified whilst chasing Jeremy & Rob and Joe & Adam Newns. After rounding Mark 3 Mini threw the spinnaker & Mohan couldn't get it up! Keeping to a safe course in order to rectify the situation he took Ant Island to starboard and by the time the mess was sorted Rear Commodore's Rocks were looming! In order to avoid delay the course was completed in the correct manner and the misdemeanour reported to the sailing convenor for disqualification.
Jeremy & Rob were being chased all the way by Joe & Adam with Adam flying the spinnaker for the first time.
Ernst didn't complete the course and would have been on the podium in third place if he had. Third place went to Claudia & Paul in their Topcat which struggled in the light winds.
What followed was an American themed lunch of guacamole, Sloppy Joe hot dogs, Chilli con carne, burgers, mexican wedges, cookies & brownies which everyone contributed towards.
Another fun day at the club
A fleet race follows next weekend with the Dunlop Bell on the 22nd
