  • 2024 Duty Rota arrangements, release and allocation timetable

It will be quite different without Ian and we ask

Racing started promptly at 10:30 on a long course which mostly tested boat speed over upwind tactics. Stuart Penny's (ILCA6) downwind speed kept him ahead of Phil Dickinson (ILCA7) for the first half of the race and allowed him to stay just in front of Carl Wood (ILCA7) throughout the dying seconds of the
