GBYC 26th march

Saturday saw 10 knot breezes from the north west with a promise of a sw change

three boats fronted the starter with Suburban boys wining the start as usual,
Suicide blonde yet again had to play catch up whilst Uninvited had reverted to days gone by with a 2 min deficit on the gun.

Suicide was able to get into a slightly better breeze and overhauled Suburban boys by the top mark. Surprisingly Uninvited was on the stern of Suburban.

At the end of second triangle Suicide had pulled away to a good lead and Suburban boys and uninvited split tacks. Uninvited led suburban boys half way up the last work as Suicide rounded the top mark for home.

On the way to the finish the sw kicked in for a bit looking like giving Suburban a dream run to make up lost ground however this was short lived as the nw came back

Final results were
Suicide Blonde
Uninvited
Suburban Boys

Next week is the club heat six which is still anyones

Cheers
