Elan 340 | G-whizz. Race One in Pictures

Elan 340 G-whizz behind at the start
Elan 340 G-whizz After misjudging our run for the line we are behind at the start.

Sixty five yachts fronted up to the starter  for the first race in the Autumn Series, thirteen of them in Blue division.  The winds were a little above the comfort zone for Wes the light weight number 1,  requiring Graham on the main to be on alert, he really earned his beer after the race. Our start was less than perfect as we were unable to pick our way through some starboard tackers to get to our desired position.

We were able to make up ground on most of the field with the exception of Agrovation, Worlds Apart and Aetos, still a fourth fastest was not a bad result, pretty close to our objective of finishing the the top three.
