Thanks to Robin Chiffers for the superb photographs of the evening’s Cruiser and Dinghy racing.
Due to the severe gusts of up to 30 miles an hour in a Westerly wind only six dinghies signed in to race this evening.
The Race Officer Jeremy Gilbert set a six lap Port Hand Olympic course.
There were four Enterprises – with even the highly experienced helms expressing that the conditions had been incredibly challenging during the race. The tight reach from the pier across towards the Mount was so fast it was breath taking. At the finish line it was Jeremy Williams (crew Di Stephens) in first with Tom Kliskey (crew Ben Deighton) second. After a capsize Colin Stephens (crew Martyn Curnow) were third and Giles Gilbert (crew Tom Gilbert) in fourth.
The two Lasers also had an exciting sail – with Kian Andrews in first and Neil Ruffell in second.
Juniors Sebi Schmidt and Lloyd Williams in the only Mirror on the course sailed two reaches but struggled on the beat and made the sensible decision to return to the harbour
