Bit of a tricky start as we were nearly over the line but managed to turn a close shave into a good start. Bit slow getting the spinnaker up but got away from the line in second place which we held to the Forts. Dropped the kite once past the wind shadow of No Mans land and headed to Bembridge.  Took an interesting tactical choice at Bembridge and headed South rather than tacking into the Island out of the tide as every one else did.  Lost out a bit due to this as both Alchemist and Blazer crossed ahead of us but we made this up once we headed South free of the Island.  Reasonable breeze for most of the day with the normal variations due to the tidal effects.  Quite a few of the boats behind us tried their A sails but we held off until it was too late and had to immediately change to the normal spinnaker which we held all the way to the finish.  Good overall result with a second and got in at a reasonable time.  l
