Regatta Sailing in May 2015
by Unknown - 13:07 on 13 May 2015
The MayDay weekend was set for a 3 day Regatta between Santa Cruz, Funchal and Camara de Lobos. The previous week we were required to take off all our sails for a re-measure. The handicap rating to be used for the weekend was ORC. We have already been rated for previous races that Red Ruth entered when new, along with the local Portuguese/Spanish rating.
A total of 12 yachts entered the weekend Regattas and the weather provided some challenges for us all. From no wind on the first day, 25 knots wind on the second day and fog on the 3rd day.
We were unable to complete the race on the first day. The lack of wind meant that we would not finish within the time constraint. We had fantastic sailing on day 2 and 3 with an overall end result of 2nd place in our Class.
