Excellent call from Jog to postpone the race till Saturday and move the finish to Poole as there was no wind overnight. 10:00 start with tide just turned and enough gradient breeze to keep the spinnaker flying. Kept to the Island side in the best of the tide but had to drop the kite as we got to Hurst as the sea breeze started to kick in. Fleet split after Hurst with some opting for the North Channel and the rest heading out to the Needles channel. We decided to stay in the channel with the prospect of more favourable tide once out in Poole bay. Wind freed enough to get our code alpha up and powered all the way to the finish. Clocked Raffles coming in from the North and Xara just ahead but not sure where Xarifa was. Results came through soon after we tied up in Poole and very pleased with another first, excellent curry later to round off a really good days racing. The pleasantest offshore race you could hope for.
