Gareloch OD Report 22 Sep 19

The last of the Sunday afternoon races this year. Heavy rain in the morning did not engender enthusiasm but it was dry with good wind (if gusty) for the race.

New to the Class Michael Lapsley and Louise Corry sailed on Catriona.

With wind blowing from the Shandon shore, a start to windward was not possible. The C mark at the north end of Clynder was judged to be downwind so that is where we went. There was time for two rounds.

Catriona just managed to reach C first, from Dione and Halcyone, avoiding anyone having an inside overlap. She was passed by Dione in the changeable air towards the starting area and followed to C the second time. The order changed as the two made their way to the finish but it was Catriona who finally benefitted from favourable air.

1 Catriona, 2 Dione, 3 Halcyone, 4 Thia, Ceres DNS.
