Some close racing with the top 3 Sigmas all on 4 points after 3 races. Shadowfax won with a 3, 1, Workout came second with a 1, 3, and Ephesian third with a 2, 2. Table of results here:

Strong tides and fickle winds certainly injected some interesting variables into the incredibly long courses and other competitors will be studying the charts more closely to see how Fax pulled off their blinder in the second race.

Shadowfax said, "We were so far behind we had a lot of time to talk about it!!! - We managed to skirt the bank, punched the tide, only put in 3 tacks and when we did it was in 2kts of tide and not 3.5Kts. We learnt on the first leg that too many tacks (for shifts etc) in that tide was totally pointless"

Anyway, a great shakedown for a first race of the season and terrific fun – only disappointing there were not more boats out to enjoy it.

Next South Coast event - Social evening, London, Thurdsay 26th May. Details to follow...

And then, on the water, Cruise / rally starting May 28th, and next racing on June 4th.
