Engine played up as we left the pontoon but soon fixed with a bit of seizing wire to fix the telegraph cable to the throttle lever. Start at 07:20 after a revision to the finish line position was announced, more of this later. Kite up straight away and headed out into the main channel to pick up the best of the tide. Good leg down the Solent with the tide under us, a number of gybes and 4th boat through Hurst. Once past bridge buoy we headed for Anvil Point with the wind behind us all to way. At Anvil Point the gradient wind disappeared and was replaced by a SW sea breeze so kite down and white sailed to St Albans. Minimal over falls and the wind had reverted to an Easterly so kite back up for the finish. Some odd calls on the radio from the boats ahead about the finish line position but we headed for the GPS position quoted at the start. However, when we got there no mark to be seen so just took our time on the spot. Looks like the quoted position was 1 degree out so we should have been a mile to the North or perhaps it was a mile long finish line.
