Autumn Trophy - Sunday 23rd October 2016

Sarah Hotchkiss

Sunday morning and the rerun of the Autumn Trophy a series of 3 races back to back. The conditions were challenging with a gusty easterly wind. Race 1 saw the Phantom of Phil Isaac get away in the lead only to capsize on the gybe mark, letting Martin and Ella Gibson in the Tasar take the lead, with the D-Zero of Robin Goff and the Laser of Stuart Turner hot on their heels. A few of the old sea dogs decided that the shifty gusty conditions were not for them and came ashore. Abi Ruffle in her Laser decided to come in and put the more manageable 4.7 rig on for the next races.

Race 2 and the Tasar got away in front, the Phantom unfortunately broke its kicker and had to come in for repairs leaving the Tasar and Laser an easy 1,2 with Abi Ruffle in her Laser coming in 3rd. The third race saw the Phantom back out and a good head to head race between the Phantom and Tasar took place with the Tasar coming out the victor on handicap.
