Squadron Members’ Regatta 8-10 July 2022

July 13, 2022

During the marriage of Joost and Christien we sailed the Squadron Members’ Regatta, of course in Cowes. Leen, D-J, Lennard, Geoff, François van Vliet and two new kids on the block: Lex van Dam friend of D-J and Louis van Roosendaal, son of Sophie. In the first two races we arrived much too late at the start. Result two times 4th out of 5 boats in Class 2. The next day we scored much better: 1st and 2nd. The last day 2nd but because of time constraint for François to catch his flight to AMSTERDAM we retired in the last race, so our overall score was 4th out of 5 boats. 

I found it not East to steer Winsome optimally and I missed of course my navigation task, which was taken over by D-J.

Hestia arrived just in time to participate in class 3. Sophie and Aster did each do the navigation on her. Next week I will navigate on Hestia in the British Classic Week.
