Race 4 26th July 2017
A brilliant start by Lily saw her first to the nuckle where her spinnaker hoist keept her ahead of the fleet all the way to Bolivar in F4 to F5 southwesterly winds. From Bolivar Houdini, as usual, made better to windward in strengthening winds and overtook Lily while Just Enough, with her reefed main, battled to overhaul Lily. Lily slowed to put in a reef on her main allowing Just Enough to get well clear. Incantation and Carpe Diem were having their usual dual and Flying Dragon was catching up to Lily; eventually overtaking her on the leg from Penrhos to Clipera. On this penultimate leg a major storm was developing with a huge dark cloud mass moving from west to east across the bay with thunder and lightning in the distance. Wind speeds suddenly increased and as Lily attempted to reef her genoa it split along a seam forcing her to retire and motor in head on into the harbour. Just Enough had similar problems and also retired.

Race 5 31st May
A good steady 10kt SSW breeze with some drops of rain falling as the severn crews prepared for the start of the last race in the May Wednesday Evening series. Lily was first away over the line close to the breakwater with Houdini, Carpe Diem and Just Enough fighting for space in the middle of the harbour. It was another starboard spinnaker leg from the knuckle and as the yachts left the harbour Just Enough had a lead over Lily. From the lighthouse the course to Bolivar was almost dead downwind and the symmetric spinnakers were well suited to this leg. Unfortunately for Lily her "Mr Motivator" spinnaker split on one panel and she was forced to drop the kite early as she approched Bolivar. The tide run at Bolivar was again quite significant but the 3 leading yachts rounded the mark bow to stern Just Enough followed by Lily and Houdini.
