An interesting start line, for the nine J24s, which could only be crossed on port tack. A North Easterly is a difficult wind for which to set a course within Poole Harbour. In consequence we all headed north on starboard. Jolly Roger and Wijit were the first to tack away towards Northshore Homes and a melee occurred when the rest of us arrived.
Spinnakers up and a long run to Balls Lake but still most of the fleet were separated by very little. However, the beat back did eventually spread us out, and we, on Vinyl Solutions found ourselves mid fleet. Jolly Roger took line honours, closely followed by Wijit and Flying Colours. Jobs for the Buoys and us had a close tussle on the final beat but helm lady Holly held her nerve and we crossed about 10 seconds in front for 4th place (uncharted, but jolly exciting, territory for us!!)
