Race 9 was a light wind race with a big shift to the LHS on the first beat. Those on the front row going left benefitted at the top. The first run saw big changes as the building breeze tried to establish. The whole fleet split taking their considered options. Some taking short term shifts and pressure, others pursuing longer term pressure.
At the bottom of the run after many place changes saw Jon, Marcus, Thor, Robin and Chris rounding with Denis and Tim closing in. The next two legs had lots of wind pressure and direction changes and required pushing the available pressure for every ounce of speed.
The finish saw Jon, Marcus and Denis take the placing’s.
