Marblehead Challenge Series 1

A blustery but mostly fine day with 7 sailors braving what was supposed to be heavy rain and ended up starting in brilliant sunshine with top of C rig conditions to test the boats. With the weather swirling quite a bit a course was set to allow fofr some long beats and at least broad reaching, but when the wind started flicking 1 of the gate marks was adjusted to force the sailors to use both sides of the gate and once this was realized it made a large difference to the decision making process. Generally a very happy bunch with the new control area limits being tested and the main result of this seemed to be getting the sailors talking to each other as to what they were planning on doing at the next point on the course, so apart for a few general recalls and a few jump starters a good day was had. Congratulations to Paul and Carl for the close racing over the day.
