Five monohulls rigged, however the wind picked up a bit and Prawn Stars decided discretion was the order of the day and stayed on the beach.
At the start the wind was around 20 knots - Pleasure and Pain took off closely followed by Italian Stallions who were revelling in the breeze and Mainiac. Blur had an issue just at the start and was a little late across the line.
Nearing the top mark, Pleasure and Pain broke their nice shiny new mast - we are not quite sure why. Shortly after a very strong squall came through for a few minutes and Italian Stallions and Mainiac had a wild jib and main reach.
Italian Stallions decided to head in after the first lap and Blur was on the way in. Mainiac were the only one left on the course so decided to follow suit near the top mark the next time.
Its a pity noone finished as the conditions were quite sailable and great fun. Hopefully we get more pleasant weather next Saturday.
