He with the most toys wins!
Blog post from the Fastnet Race team onboard EH01 racing in the RORC Morgan Cup Race
Good morning from EH01 and the GYR Fastnet race team. The sun is up and slowly warming the crew after a chilly night. winds are light and variable, there are competitors all around us from all classes, its been that sort of night. some faster boats and some slower boats. When the race course is s a straight drag race like this with light winds, the lighter boats seem to go better. Also its a case of ‘he with the most toys wins’ as anyone with a code 1 is doing well. We hope to round the Casquets before the tide changes and hopefully pop a kite to pick our speed up.
Moral is good and the crew have settled in well. during the kite run down the Solent they did some good kite work and pulled of a nifty last minute jibe when the A40 to our port side gybed on us without warning. All so far so good, just need to keep everyone focused on boat speed now.
