MBSC Heat 1 quick wrap


Well, it was what you'd call a challenging day yesterday at Mounts
Bay. Listless easterly, eventually replaced by an asthmatic sea
breeze. Fleet broke into two, with Wise Magic (Mann) and Bullit
(Gabrielson) tussling it out up front, while the remaining five boats
got caught in the doldrums mid-river.

Beside all this, there were some interesting moments, so I am
expecting to receive an entertaining race report in the next day or
so, so stay posted.

This photo shows Loaded Dice's spinnaker billowing in all its glory,
as Gordo urges his boat towards the mark.

Let's hope the wind kicks in for next weekend......
