Shields@Noon in TrYC – September 23rd

Another 4 boats fleet with a novice in Triumphal, Dean, who wasn’t lucky. He had problem in the start of first, and crashed in second 😦

Congrats Indra for your two wins.

First race was 2 laps of C3. While not really a close race, competitors were never too far from each other.

  1. Race 1: Like on a pearl necklace, the racers came in with almost consistant 10 secs gaps. What a nice choreography. 🙂

    Race 2: If Chris was a bit cleverer she’d protested Indra’s illegal maneuvre or luffed her up until Indra has to tack. Anyhoo, Indra, as the overtaking boat has to give Chris room and can’t just ram into her. Not just the hull, but no parts of the rigging are supposed to touch Chris’s boat.
