Not a good forecast with just 3/4 knts NE'ly but as it turned out it was a lot better.  Bit shy on the start due to the strong tide and light wind.  First problem was to sail/drift successfuly between Prince Consort and Snowden.  Once that was achieved the wind started to die altogether but then the sea breeze filled from the SW making it a kite leg to Fastnet Insurance.  Back across the Solent to Yawl with a tricky rounding against the tide.  Another good kite leg to Browndown and a careful jibe to make it to Stokes Bay. Made good progress under kite but fell back on the long leg back to Hill Head.  Royal Thames was in as a passing mark but seemed to generate some odd routings as we needed to get back to the slot between Snowden and Prince Consort.  Once on the run into the finish it was short tacking up Cowes Green to Gurnard.  4th in Class 4 so pretty pleased overall consideering  what the prospects  for the day looked like.
