Race Day 22 with Bandit 22LTE at Saint Aubrey

The rolling restarts during the day blew the clouds away and we had overall smooth conditions.
Lisa, Amy (with crew Ester), Erin, Nicci, Ella, Shadow (with crew Jess), Moon, Rugger and Flapio came yesterday for our reversed course and wind from South East with 21knots.
Flapio hit the dangerous cross between first and second buoy and retired and Shadow in her first race with us gave up after she did some wrong turns on the course.

The fleet at the briefing. Flapio came short before the start and is missed on the picture and in Hakiria’s close up video)

It seems as if the northern half of the start line didnt rez for Hakiria. But be sure i saw the line and all crossed it. The only thing we cant show is that Ella crossed the line just 0.1-0.2sec too early and had to come back for her restart.
Lisa, Erin, Amy and Rugger started best followed by Nicci, Flapio and Moon. Shadow in her first race started slow and Ella followed the fleet after her restart

Lisa arrived first at the first buoy CS chased by Amy. Erin and Rugger followed them just a bit behind.

Amy chased the whole race Lisa and didnt give her any relaxed moments and finished in the end only 20sec behind Lisa.
Behind the two leaders Erin, Rugger, Moon and Nicci had a exciting duel with several position changes on their long fast leg to buoy OW. See some of them in Hakiria’s video

Nicci short before Ella at buoy OE

and Rugger short behind Ella

Ella still trying hard to catch up with Nicci on the downwind leg to buoy CN.
While these two were on their way to CN the 4 leaders started already the last upwind leg to the finish line (video by Hakiria)

Erin tried hard to catch up with Moon again, but Moon could manage to stay in front of Erin at buoy CS and later at the finish

The Finish: 1. Lisa, 2. Amy, 3. Moon, 4. Erin, 5.Nicci, 6. Ella, 7. Rugger (video by Hakiria)

Congrats to Lisa for her win, to Amy in her best B22 race ever at Saint Aubrey and keeping Lisa the whole race on her toes, Moon for a great chase after the start and passing some sailors and Ella for some awesome sailing at the end of the fleet after her messed up start.
