The first race of the season was won by Respect a new arrival to the club with some old owners and crew.
A F4/5 was blowing from the East and a flood tide there were some close tacking duels up the South shore between No Worries, Respect and Hardslog. Hardslog and Henceforth both had some spinnaker troubles and so Respect was left on top of the podium.
The new committee boat also had her first outing which proved very successful. The clubs Race Officers said ‘she was very manoeuvrable but needs the windlass for the anchor fitted!’.
