Race 1 was completed in just over an hour. The wind is proving steady and we have just had all the start sequences for race 2 for all of Fleet A. IRC 0 had a clean start. IRC 1 went into the start sequence but had an answering pennant put up as the commitee felt the line was unfair. The line was reset and thefleet were started but it came t general recall. The race officer decided to use a black flag but this time the start was clear. 1720s all clear also. The course for all of fleet A is the same as earlier today but the marks have been spaced out to give a longer race! It’s been some lovely clean racing so far, let’s hope the afternoon is as smooth!
