RNSA(P) Wednesday Spring Series race 7

Portsmouth - 09 May 19 Offshore

Although it had been blowing dogs off chains in the Solent all day the forecast wind models indicated a moderation in the eastern Solent around 1800 therefore the series organiser decided to go ahead with racing and let individual owners decide on whether they wished to participate.

As it turned out over half the fleet decided to play and although somewhat frisky on leaving harbour the reduction in pressure came in as forecast. Jolly Jack Tar initially with a double reefed mainsail set the course with one start only for the 6 boat fleet.
After a lively charge around the Solent Spirit of Kudu took the honours from Jolly Jack Tar and Option in IRC with 'Turn to Starboard's' First 40 taking prime spot in NHC followed by Wizard and Spirit of Kudu.
With half a point separating the top 3 yachts in IRC the next 2 races will be crucial.
