Saturday 30 April Spring series Race 3
Saturday's 12 strong fleet were greeted with a light to moderate West to North West breeze. With all other fleets racing to studland and back, the Fifteens elected for an olympic triangle course within the harbour. The fleet got away first time, with 3 boats being called back for premature starts. What followed was a very shifty and gusty race with many opportunities for gains and losses and with a big black cloud inland, the wind was always going to veer. When it did towards the end of the race, it did so in spectacular style, with a white knuckle ride to the finish.
After a long race, the fleet finished remarkably close together.
