Bembridge Canvas race – Sunday June 4th

Five intrepid XODs set forth from Itchenor in a fresh breeze in the flat waters of the Harbour which belied the conditions beyond the entrance and the open waters beyond.  X50 Xcitation led the way followed by X186 Phoenix, X101 Thora, X65 Veronique and X192 Felix.  Upon experiencing the rough seas south of West Pole both Veronique and Felix decide that discretion was the better part of valour and returned to base.

The remaining three took long legs against the south-westerly out towards the Nab Tower only tacking when the port tack would take them to Bembridge.  Thora had to throw in a quick tack to avoid a tanker in the main channel and ended a little higher on the course than desired.  The crew in X50 struggled to find the finish line but managed to stay ahead of X186, finishing a minute ahead after over two and a half hours of racing.  X101 was third.

A splendid roast lunch was enjoyed at the very hospitable Bembridge Sailing Club.  On the return trip, spinnakers were hoisted to ensure a quick (and much drier) ride home.

It should be noted that two of the three finishers included lady members among their crew!  Well done Susanna, Nicola and Sarah.
