Sunday 10th April 2016
In completely different conditions from the morning race, the wind was increasing and the sea was to be come more choppy throughout the afternoon.
Being a Pursuit Race, there was a briefing before sailing and the RS Feva of Michael and Samuel Dyer would be starting first, then the Laser Radial and Lasers and finally the Contender.
The RS Feva went off quickly and steadily sailed around the Course, raising the Spinnaker between marks SP2 and SP3 and increasing their lead all the time, as they approached SP4, the Lasers started their race, as the Lasers rounded SP1, the RS Feva lapped the Lasers.
The Contender upon starting went in pursuit of the Laser Fleet and eventually caught up with them and sailed past them and then in turn went on to catch the RS Feva who was having an amazing race. In the strengthening wind, there were a number of capsizes and retirements.
The Race Officer took the decision to shorten the race due to increase in wind speed.
1st RS Feva 4530 Michael Dyer and Samuel Dyer
2nd Laser 208321 Graham Harbord.
