Island Sailing Club Tuesday Evening Series - Race 17

by Peter Dickson , Race Officer 24 Aug 2018 07:42 BST 21 August 2018

Race 17, the penultimate in the current series, provided perfect sailing conditions both for competitors and spectators.

A steady 10 knot WSW breeze, a turning neap tide and evening sun shining out of a clear blue sky set the scene for this evening spectacular. The last yacht crossed the Island Sailing Club finish line just after 8 pm just as dusk was falling and in keeping with the ethos of these races emerged the winner on handicap!

Thanks again from all of us to Red Funnel for once again allowing the starts to proceed uninterrupted.
