It's been a very long time 8-9months since we last raced with the B rigs but the wait was worth it. What a blast and the Edge didn't let the side down with 8 bullets from 10 races. I retired in the seventh race when the jib sheet got tangled around the clew which looks like an impossible feat on dry land but that's sailing and again the jib sheet snagged on something during the first leeward mark rounding of the tenth race. This opened the door for Nigel to glide past taking the lead whilst I was left to faff about which eventually released the sheet. With a 15m lead there was little chance of me catching him up so I had to settle for a second.
Unfortunately skipper numbers were slightly down on the usual and the results will be littered with retirements due to poor rig choice, breakages and in Doug's case an attraction to the only tree obstruction in the whole lake!
An enjoyable coffee break. Note the wind sock in the distance which never dropped below horizontal
A not so enjoyable break!
