On the 2nd of February, 4 of the DBYC yachts ( Speedy Gonzales , Nervous Breakdown, Sandmartin and Legs 11) participated in this fairly ad-hoc event ! Unfortunately the winds that were originally forecast at force 4-5 out of the east did not materialise!! The wind speed ranged from 0-12 knots during the race! But the sun stayed out and Sandmartin and Legs had the better start with Sandmartin getting more favourable breeze and a better wind angle on the upwind leg to Datum Rock ! But Speedy Gonzales caught up, rounded Datum Rock first and somehow managed to hold on to the breeze! Sandmartin and Nervous Breakdown got completely stuck in wind-holes as did did Legs 11! A decision to shorten the course was made - the finish sequence over the line and on corrected time was Speedy , Legs , Sand Martin , Nervous Breakdown! We then gathered on the Nim Shi Wan Pier for a post race drink and some friendly banter!
