Cowes Classics – Day 3 – July 24

Another day of clear blue skies, and warm, light winds from the North.  For the first the race the wind was fairly firm and favouring those on the right hand side.  One of those was John Tremlett enjoying his first outing this week in Lass finishing in 2nd place.  Other Itchenor boats with results worthy of a mention are Foxglove – 5th, Relaxation with her best result so far – 8th, Xanadu – 11th and Thora 12th.

The second race started on a fading breeze and finished on an almost flat calm.  Among boats who made the best of the challenge was Lass again with a 3rd, and Michael Martell’s Astralita in 8th – his best of the week.

Overall after discard Foxglove remains in 4th place,  Annabel had a disappointing day with a 20th and 21st and has slipped to 6th. Lass’s good day brings her up to 11th with Thora Itchenor’s only other top 20 performer in 19th.  David Palmer had a day to forget being OCS in the first race and then 42nd in the subsequent race dropping just into the 20s.
