Anniversary Race Sunday 19th April

Well, first running of a race using the new personal handicap system. No-one''s actually shot me yet, but maybe that''s because as I write I''m the only person who''s seen the results.

Well, if nothing else it was a glorious day for sailing. A healthy turn out of boats, particularly amongst the Solos, and some very close racing in sunshine and a nice breeze. Spring has come. A northerly breeze, quite variable in strength and direction. I can''t do much of a report on this race as I cunningly missed the start so didn''t see very much.

Take a look at the results above, and see how you think the handicapping is working. The boats were close today - there were a lot of gusts tending to consolidate the fleets on the downwind legs, and consequently sailors in the higher bands were generally favoured.
