The very last race of the season for the old ladies, born in 1925. It was a stiff breeze off the Shandon shore.
On the water race officer Peter Proctor selected a course beginning downwind to D, north of Clynder. Catriona with Michael Lapsley on the helm made a leisurely start but Spinnaker work better than the rest put Catriona in contention with Halcyone early on. Thalia following.
Halcyone was first to D but made a wide rounding and let Catriona inside. She dropped into wind shadow and was obliged to tack away. Catriona found better wind on the beat towards the Shandon shore and that was that.
1 Catriona, 2 Halcyone, 3 Thalia
