The 1st of 2 Pursuit races was sailed with 6 boats at the start.
Weather conditions were great with very light winds to start. Given the wind the race was sailed “back-to-front”.
Chaos set in shortly after the boats cleared the breakwater, when neither helmsman nor crew could convert True East to Compass for the correct course to sail. To further aggravate the situation the boats couldn’t find the “imaginary” turning marker as they didn’t know how to tell the time!
All in all a great day on the water with a good follow-up at the Bitter-End and an enjoyable SAILORS HOUR. Thankfully the Race Officer was no were in sight to answer for the confusion!
