Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 4

by Richard Palmer, Principal Race Officer on 10 May 9 May 2017

Competitors faced a tricky SE wind at 8 to 10 knots with a very strong east going tide.

For race four of the Evening Race Series, Race Officer Richard Palmer set courses to the east with the tide which caught out some starters who were carried over the line and had to return to start properly. Short courses with 2 rounds were the order of the day. A wind shadow from Old Castle Point in East Cowes gave the sailors the option of keeping out in the wind but suffering tide or vice versa.

Significant gains were made by keeping close to the new breakwater where a favourable tidal eddy was to be found!

Very close finishing kept the whole race team on their toes who did an excellent job with the results.
