Decent breeze at the start and were hoping for a straight forward kite leg to Needles Fairway but not to be as it was very tight with numerous broaches but just made it in the end.  Downed the kite before the mark and re- hoisted once round and an easier leg to North Head.  Decided not to gybe the kite round the mark as it was pretty windy and not easy with just the two of us.  White sailed up to Hurst and kite back up as we headed down the Solent for the finish at Gurnard.  Had to do a couple of gybes as it was nearly dead down wind and the last one went pointy bits upwards.  Ended up letting the halyard go to unravel the twist which once back on track probably cost us a couple of minutes and dropped us from third to forth place.  As we approached the finish we were passed by Jackdaw which as it turned out beat us in the double handed but we got a very respectable 2nd although we did benefit from the building adverse tide. .
