The Black Prince Takes first evening race of the Season

The Black Prince took the first evening yacht race of the season in a F4 SSW. With a very short start line (initial laid mark couldn’t be moved because of tide !), an excellent course using the very strong tide tested the tacticians who found it particularly difficult with no hiding places up the shores one can find with more westerly winds. A 30 deg shift half way through the race caught a few boats out and lifted others up a few places on the leaderboard. With all the dredging in marina TBP even got back on her berth at low water  and in the bar before sunset ! Full results here
