Earlybird Series – 24th March 2024

Four intrepid souls set forth in 18kts of wind to tackle a simple triangle course. Neil and Andrew led the field away from the start and fight up the beat to the first mark before a tangled foot led to Andrew capsizing and Neil shot clear off down the run.

Then the conditions started to narrow down the field. Andy retired and a second capsize for Andrew (and a bang to the head from the boom) at the end of first race, meant the second race consisted of two boats. Laser vs Topaz. But it was a short race to let Neil capitalise on the absence of Steve before they were called in to ensure there were still enough people to recover the rescue boat.
