Given today’s forecast of possible thunderstorms and lightning, the PRO elected to run just 1 race for the Ted Rice Trophy. The race course was set in Bramble Bay in a ENE moderate breeze. 3 Flying Fifteens and 2 505’s took to the course to face the longer than normal course. Port end of the line was favoured and all competitors took advantage of this before settling into a long leg to the windward mark. The first of the reaching legs kept the boats pinned before running broad to the bottom mark. After 3 laps, first over the line was Ben and Charles in Mickey Occhi Blue, but after the handicapper had had his way, SNAffU was the victor.
All boats made it safely to shore before the rain and thunder set in.
Thanks to all the volunteers and competitors. We look forward to seeing you again on 11 December for episodes 3 & 4 of the Club Championships.
