Race 3 17th December

With a WSW wind 12kt gusting up to 18kt at the start of the race the 3 yachts were all out early for the 13:50 revised start time to avoid clashing with the ferry schedule. Lily got a bit out of place in the melee around the Porth Y Felin moorings and started behind the two J’s but got a reasonably good spinnaker hoist taking advantage of the dead downwind leg out of the harbour. The two J’s bore away to facilitate their asymmetrics but with the winds gusting as the racers approached the Aluminium Jetty they all suffered broaches with Lily heading horribly close to the jetty and still on starboard pole! At the very last minute Lily’s crew managed to release the pole and drop the spinnaker but, having just got back to within spitting distance of the other two yachts, lost a lot of time in the subsequent broach.

Prior to start there was a good deal of preparation to be done but all four yachts made it in time to have some practice with the new crew members signed up through the club’s website Crewing Opportunities page.

The course was set as Start,
