Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 15

by Tony Taylor 26 Jul 2017 18:46 BST 25 July 2017

44 boats came to the start line for the Island Sailing Club's Evening Race Series. The warm summer evening, with 15/18 knots of WSW breeze gave excellent sailing conditions.

Unfortunately, some of Class 1 and 2 boats were prevented from getting to the start as it was low tide and the new floating bridge chains did not give them enough clearance to pass, effectively trapping them in the river.

With a running start to the east only one boat was over the line at the start. A strong flood tide encouraged the Race Officer to shorten the course for the XODs and Class 4 cruisers enabling the last boat to finish at 2024.

There was a good turnout in the Flying Fifteen class with close competition and only three minutes separating the first and last boats.
