Volvo Noble Marine RS800 Nationals at Stokes Bay Sailing Club - Day 2

by Alain Sign on 23 Sep 21-24 September 2017

It was another glorious day at Stokes Bay SC. Three races were scheduled. There was a small delay as the South Easterly breeze swung to South West.

The first start John Belben and Alain Sign pulled the fleet over causing a general recall. The Birthday Boy Josh obviously wanted a birthday bullet. The fleet restarted under the black flag. Chris Rashley and Billy Ozanne unknowingly were black flagged and led the race but left the race win to Andy and Allyson Jeffries. She had had her Weetabix!!

The breeze was in for the next two races. The tide was strong meaning laylines were important. Chris Rashley took a first and fourth. The top four are very close going into Saturday's racing.

Once ashore the RS800 were kept busy with their AGM, a great burger night, then the Pirate Party! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
