Results can be found on the Rutland website - link below.

30 entries - doubtless reduced by the horrid weather.

Windy!!

They delayed the start until 1:00pm, it was probably sailable at 11:00 but launching directly into a force 6 with a good swell would have been messy at best. Once we got out i'd say it was about force 5 thorugh both the races I did.

The third race was more of the same allthough the wind shifted 10 degrees northward forcing them to reset the line. I thought the race management was excellent, they got the racing going as soon as they could each time.

I think, at the prize giving, the guy said it was blowing consistently mid 20's and gusting 35 several times during the racing. Which makes it Force 5/6 gusting 7 if he was measuring in mph or Force 6 gusting 8 if in knots!

I missed the 1st race after gear failure.

Jeez, that place really does dish it up sometimes.  Am missing Merlins + Rutland weekends rather a lot these days :)
