Bass’ unique weather system kicked in this week. There was little wind to the west or north but a real Helm Wind at Bass. This put a few crews off launching but Harry brought the Aero down for a run out. Unfortunately the rigging needed some sorting so he was late to the line.
The course was 5-1-0 so there was a long dead run which kept the GP crews busy with multiple gybes. The Solos of John and Tog were ocs at the start leaving Rory to uphold their honour. AJ & Sue were first round the windward mark but Val & Ken got through by delaying their tack for the line at the end of lap 1. Eric & his new French crew in their FF were first on the water by this time.
Andy was fixing his Mirror’s bailer so Katia launched a Tera to take on Matthew. She just lost out but they took the two lead places on PH.
This week’s evening’s meal was provided by James & Jenny.
