A number of boats had different crew. Juniors sailed on three of the five Sharpies - Maddison on Pleasure & Pain, Elliott on Mainiac and Michael on Space Monkeys. All seemed to really enjoy the experience.
The handicaps worked pretty well overall - although if Dean sails the NS again we will have to be careful ! With one lap to go, the fleet had closed up pretty well but as the wind picked up, Truck showed their great upwind speed and made a bit of a move. Mainiac were going really well but set the spinnaker on the reach to X which actually cost them time. Space Monkeys and Blur chose the wrong side of the course on the last work and lost touch.
At the finish, Dean in the NS won by a few minutes from Italian Stallions. They were followed by Truck and Panther with all the other boats finishing pretty close together.
Please remember that if you have input on future courses for club racing you should talk to me over the next couple of weeks
