The forecast for today matched yesterday’s forecast of 10-12 knot NE. Overnight there was quite a lot rain, causing minor flooding in some areas.
Rain threatened again throughout the day and the breeze was initially from the ESE. Only one race was scheduled for today and this was the final race of the series.
The start got away cleanly and there seemed to be 2 themes – go left, or go right. Regardless of the side of the course it was a tactical battle today, both upwind and downwind with substantial shifts and varying pressure on the course.
