Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 13

by Tony Taylor 18 Jul 2018 18:24 BST 17 July 2018

50 boats turned out for race 14 in the Island Sailing Club's Evening Race Series. Another fine summers evening, with a brisk west south westerly wind held up through the racing.

Courses were set to the East to take advantage of the slackening tide and gave all of the classes some competitive windward legs. With all boats in view from the clubhouse and most classes on different courses it was an entertaining evening for spectators.

All classes were warned to stay clear of an obstruction, a buoyed mast, to the north east of West Ryde Middle buoy and fortunately no one encountered it.

The first boat to cross the line was 'Jelvis' Martin Dent's J111, but on handicap she could only manage third place in Class 1. The winner in class 1 was Ellie Cumpsty in her Etchells 'Mano'. In Class 3 the strong breeze favoured the heavier South Coast one Design 'Stirling' owned by Jaik Tari which finished first on handicap.
