After floating around waiting for wind, catching up with fellow competitors and a general recall or two we were finally blessed with an amazing 3 hour race incorporating the Gore and Marlow trophies. The wind built throughout and concentration levels came and went. The Marlow race leaders mixed in with the Gore racers and kept up with them for most of the race! Those who kept focused were rewarded with both a fantastic, competitive sail, a bottle of cava and new jib and main sheets from Marlow ropes. The all girl crew of Amy Morris and Gilly Phillips lead throughout and took the podium followed by Tony Thresher and Mike — and in third place Simon Cowdell and Jonquil Brookes.
