Round the Island Race 2010 - 19th June 2010

Round the Island Race 2010

Crew – PJ plus Tom Gadsden, Ed Lock, Eddie Pope, Kerri Whitehouse, Sue Verschoyle, Stephen Lamdin, Jacqui Evans, Peter Lubrano Clare Lubrano, Michael Thomas.

Start 0530 RYS line Cowes.

A good start at the Island end of the line saw In X Celsis in the leading boats reaching under spinnaker to the Needles. Rounding the Needles outside the wreck we fell into wind shadow for a short while before hoisting the code zero and making up good ground on a course keeping towards the island. Good foredeck work by Ed Lock saw a sail change to the jib and a close reach to St Catherine’s with a few yards under the heavy weather spinnaker, taken down too soon!

Clearing the lighthouse saw us reaching with jib and main in one hit to Bembridge Ledge, followed by a beat to the forts. A freshening northerly breeze gave a good reach to the finish, making up some places and getting away from the following fleet.

Hard work by Stephen on mainsheet supported by Tom was a valuable factor in getting round the South of the island in freshening winds with the whole crew working hard on the rail, made for and enjoyable and successful sail. No damage!

Finishing at 1318 at 17th of 34 in our class was a creditable result with new crew performing well.

Many thanks.

Skipper
