Commentary
The weather waxed and waned all week, and wind direction rotated round all points of the compass, and it wasn’t until late on Friday night in Europe, and not quite so late in Greenland, that the best mix of strength and direction over the days that were in it presented itself: 20kn to 25kn out of the North West. Plenty spotted it, but many, some perhaps not wanting to upset their bio-rhythms unduly, started a tad too early. Nevertheless, all those who started any time between 18:00 UTC and 03:00 the next morning beat all times that had been set up to then. The jagged edges of the multiple obstructions, ostensibly islands, on our chart of Copper Mine Bay do a fair impression of floes and icebergs, and dodging and going the right sides of them was certainly also of import for a good run.

As it happened, it was a repeat performance by the podium of our previous Timed Race on the Hauraki Gulf, but this time a more 10 seconds separated first from third. Well done once more, chaps!

PEP Sprint 2017
Eddystone Lighthouse marks a nasty patch of rocks about 10 nm SSW of the approach to Plymouth. With the prevailing winds generally out of the SW in this part of the world, chances then are this race departing from inner Plymouth harbour, is going to be a beat out to the Light, requiring inter alia the avoidance of a very substantial breakwater, followed by a run to the finish out on open water. Perhaps 18 nm as the crows flies, and therefore, even as your FinnGulf 43 flies, a quickie.
