2014 Day 3

Friday 30th May 2014

The third race day saw a delayed start waiting for the winds to build, leading to a 12:45pm start time. Kelpie was first across the line, followed 3 minutes later by Velecarina. Adix, Mariette and Christopher all tacked parallel, planning their turns to coincide with their allotted start times all passing very close to the start buoy making for one of the most dramatic starts to the week. By the first mark the fleet was divided with the three more modern yachts once more leading the fleet.

Velacarina held back the others for the next hour, flying her bright orange spinnaker down to the Manacles buoy. She looked to have the advantage but was caught by Christopher on the last marker as they all turned within a minute of each other towards ‘Gylly Beach’. Christopher was pursued by Breakaway until the finish line, with Velacarina crossing in third. Mariette was the next to finish with Adix and then Kelpie following. The tight racing at the end of Day 3 leaves Velacarina in first place on amended time, but with just 2 points separating the leading two yachts it’s all to play for on Saturday.
