Compass Rose
What an exciting race this was for all who sailed. Strong winds were forecast for the race. The fleet of 8 started in near perfect conditions of 15 - 20 knots South Easterly winds. A quick beat to Smitswinkel and reach across to Gordon's Bay kept the fleet fairly close to each other. However true to form as the fleet got to the lee of the mountains across the bay the 24 - 36 knots they received in Gordon's Bay died forcing a few boats to retire. 4 managed to continue to the finish with 3 hours between firt and last crossing the line. Feed from a few of the boats was they thoroughly enjoyed the race even in the stronger breeze.
