Pursuit Race - Saturday 2nd June 2018

On a very damp and almost windless day 5 boats took part in the race ; Stardust, Ziggy, Zingaro, Bugel Noz and Rioja.
Shoestrings failed to make it to the start having fouled a mooring chain with the propellor.

At the finish time Rioja was in the lead with Zingaro in second place.

The race was very slow with Rioja only halfway down the Shell to Harlech leg on the first lap at the finish time.

Congratulations to John Ball, winner of the 2018 Pursuit Race.

The Hong Kong Race was sailed in the most changable weather ever. Sunshine and wind very light and variable at the start. Becalmed at times near Porthmadog fairway (which was not on station) and then strong winds, heavy rain and hailstones nearer to Pwllheli. But we came back in a force 4 northerly which made for a fast reach. Later finishing boats lost the wind again. After more than 7 hours, the first three boats finished within 8 minutes of each other. Good close racing. Well done to all who competed.
