JOG Races Saturday - 15th May 2010

JOG Races Saturday 15th May Sunday 16th May Cowes Yarmouth Cowes.

Saturday Race

Crew PJ plus Oliver Overstall, Tom Gadsden, Ant Garratt, Sue Verschoyle, Kerri Whiteside, Brendon Pell, Lucia Ainsworth

Start 0940 JOG line Cowes.

A poor start in light winds saw us carried on the tide NE Sturbridge towards the back of the fleet.

A beat to Hill Head, Gurnard Ledge and West Lepe followed by a fetch to Saltmead saw us climb back through the fleet to finish 9th of 16 starters. Beat Exocet of Mesilah again!

Sunday Race back to Cowes.

Same crew plus Stephen Lamdin

Start 0910 Royal Solent line.

A good start with a quick spinnaker hoist saw In X Celsis in the front of the fleet making for NE Gurnard, however, a “wine glass” following a spinnaker gybe lost valuable ground putting us to the back of the fleet before East Bramble.

A good mark rounding followed by a long tack into shallow water off Osborne bay put us in a strong position against boats on the opposite tack. Three more tacks to the finish with good crew work and going close to the shore before the finish saw us only 15 seconds behind Night Owl and more than 7 minutes in front of Exocet on corrected time.

Other regular rivals were given a good beating! Nijos retired seeing how far she was behind us on the water.

A second place in Class 3 was an encouraging reward for the whole crew.

A welcome to Lucia and Brendon racing with In X Celsis for the first time. Good foredeck work by Ant with Brendon, spinnaker sheet by Kerri and guys by Lucia all contributed well. Tom on tactics, disciplined as ever, Ollie in switches untying knots! Stephen finding mainsheet a good physical workout! Sue reliable as ever on the runners and spinnaker packing.

Thanks and well done everyone.
