Yates Cup: Team Vodafone Sailing Race Report

It was a great start, good bit of reaching to Rangi light. Pity that was all the reaching in it!

A big leeward – windward – leeward. Good ride though, 3 sail running out to Cuiver.

Bit of puff round the corner, reef in reef out, trim – solent changes. Then settled down to a nice flat water on the wind.

Till the Poor knights park up.

After a couple of 4kt pirouettes we got round the Knight and started some more light vmg running action, not a orma 60s strong point.

The maxis closed in and I think Rio probably could have crossed at one stage. But we managed to wiggle back in front and hook into a 30min reach to extend a little.

Finishing at 07:12:36.

Rio 100 came in chasing us down again, followed by the 80 ft Beau Geste Racing not long after.
