Spring Series 1 AYC saw no action due to unfavourable weather. Yesterday five boats braved the elements for Spring Series 2. At the start the sun came out, the wind lessened and it turned out to be a glorious afternoon sail. Course S, B, X (all starboard) Q (port) finish. Tantrum took the lead at the start hotly pursued by Skye with Cariad, Eden, and Green Ginger in close formation. Skye almost got past a couple of times, Eden gained some pace in the river with less flukey wind but Tantrum made it past S ahead; some bad tacks towards B saw Eden take a large lead. Others still hotly in pursuit, Tantrum having an extra tack fell further back. Eden extended her lead rounding Eden, with the strengthening tide took little time getting to X. Skye, Green Ginger and Cariad swapped places a few times and closed the gap on the leaders. Back to Q against the tide required some serious short tacking and Tantrum managed to squeeze past Eden, squeak round Q and take line honours. The sun continued to shine and there was another glorious sunset at Aldeburgh. Thank goodness the sailing season has started – winter is over! (famous last words!)
