Gul Mirror World Championship at Restronguet Sailing Club - Overall

by Martin Egan 5 Aug 2017 15:20 BST 29 July - 4 August 2017

Day 5 of the Gul Mirror Worlds, only one more race, and the Cornish weather was a bit more like it with a moderate, but shifty wind and sunny intervals.

The first attempt at getting Race 12 away failed when, with about 2 minutes to go, a large hole developed near the Committee Boat, and the wind picked up & shifted hard left at the pin end.

The second attempt, under a 'U' flag, looked, to me, very biased towards the pin, but with seconds to go, it shifted back allowing a clean start. On the beat it paid to go right at first and 'Holey Sheet' sailed by Esme Shepherd & Max Phypers from Restronguet led for the first lap, with the pack in hot pursuit. Esme & Max held a narrow lead at the end of the third beat, but the pressure from behind was too much - Dave & Imogen Wade from Northampton SC got past to win with 'Hype', sailed by Archie Hawkins & Jack Stevens from Looe SC second.

So with all 12 races sailed, Cullen & Rowan Hughes from Balmoral SC in Australia were the new Mirror World Champions and were applauded ashore and carried up the slipway in their boat.
