Gareloch OD Race Report 26th Aug 18

Wind was blowing from the Shandon Shore so that our course began with a fetch to A, off the club. Thence downwind to D north of Clynder in preparation for a windward leg home.

Catriona fancied she had made a good start at the favoured shore end of the line and was comfortably leading at the A mark. As she was about to hoist a spinnaker she was hailed by Hermes, who was coming to the end of the first leg, to say that she had started prematurely. Hermes had been at the pin end of the line before the start and had a race officer’s view. It was an awfully long way back to start correctly. From then on, the order was set. Hermes did not set a spinnaker on her first round and so made no impression of the leading group, where Dione was under no pressure.

1 Dione, 2 Thalia, 3 Thia, 4 Hermes, 5 Catriona.
