17 Mirrors, mainly from the Poole YC Squadron with a couple of visitors from the West Country contested the Poole YC open over the weekend 22nd/23rd May. Saturday was a pleasant sunny day with a very shifty & variable force 2 to 4 Easterly and a neap tide.
The fleet got away cleanly at the start of Race 1. There were lots of place changes on the 1st beat as the shifts and gusts came and went. Eventually Ania Booth and Jenny House in “Festino Lente” climbed they way out of the pack to lead at the first mark from Matt & Ben Mills in “Chalk N Cheeze” followed by Charlotte Hine & Jenny Llewelyn in “The Immaculate Contraption”.
