International Canoe Europa Cup at Loch Lomond Sailing Club - Day 3

by Gareth Caldwell 1 Aug 2013 08:32 BST 29 July - 2 August 2013

Another mixed and varied day... of wind strength and direction. A beat towards Hell's Gate in a steady(ish) force 2 put a premium on making the most of any increase in pressure found.

Colin Brown again showed a lean pair of heels to the rest of the IC fleet, with Gareth holding onto second place by half a boat length from Alistair. The AC fleet was again shown the way around the course by Robin Wood.

Race 4 was held in a dying breeze, with numerous place changes due to the vagrancies of wind and direction. In the ICs, Colin won followed by Alistair. Tony Robertshaw broke the dominance of Robin in the AC fleet.

The fleet waited in vain for an increase in wind for a further race, but it never materialised and the fleet returned to prepare for the haggis night.
