Race 5

The holiday Monday again dawned bright and sunny; but again with little wind. The PRO had us all assemble at the planned starting mark; and then moved us all on to Gleeds – the mark outside Portsmouth. By now there was a little breeze so a course was set: out through the forts, round one mark and back for a downwind leg before finishing with a reach down to Chi.
With the running start there were mixed views on whether to start on port or starboard, round the buoy or round the RO boat. This made for a “fun” start at both ends of the line. Then it was a bit of a beat, a run and then a broad reach to the finish. The veering wind allowed many to fly downwind sails on the last reach to pass Chi.
