Conditions were virtually the same as Saturday’s Race 3, perfect sailing weather, sun and a good breeze, moderate to fresh south westerly. Addiction was again the committee boat but this time used a gate start at Rig Shop. 11 boats started, (including a few new comers which good to see) and the course was East Hook, Perenco Wych Farm, Bournemouth, Branksome, Perenco Wych Farm, Poole Finish line. Just after rounding Perenco Wych Farm for the second time the bow deck fitting for the forestay and furler parted on Matchmaker II! (So check yours!) The rig was released and MatchmakerII motored home. The skipper would like to thank, Shebeen, Mojito and Joy who stood by. It was very comforting.
1st Energy, 2nd Ceres, 3rd Calabash.
