2014 Day 1

Tuesday 27th May 2014

Although glorious sunshine and cobalt blue skies were welcoming to the spectator boats on the water today, the unpredictable light winds on the first day of racing for the 2014 Pendennis Cup meant the fleet was always going to find conditions challenging. The race showed an interesting balance of tactics and sail combinations, with the winning yacht Breakaway perfectly suited to making the most of the wind eddies falling off the coast whilst the larger yachts needed the more consistent sea breezes to fill their sails. The Class 2 Little Dennis Fleet enjoyed the calmer seas and crept up on the Pendennis Cup fleet throughout the race. Firebrand led the division throughout the second half of the course eventually winning by a clear 10minute margin.

A full race report is outlined in the News section of the website, with the days results tabled below.
