Race Report

It was a close start with all 3 boats going across the line within seconds of each other with Ben Chandler and crew Laura Tabis-Jacobson sailing a Dart 18, over the line first, where they remained for the first lap.

Opening up a 2 minute advantage over the second Dart dingy sailed by Dan Cowler and crew Ben Lever James Parsons and crew son Harry in the third Dart 18 were forced to retire after the first lap with gear failure.

By the windward mark on the second leg the gap between the remaining dinghy’s racing had been reduced to 40 seconds . But Chandler got his head down and eventually ran out the winner with a margin of 90 seconds.
