OYC Timms Cup Results and Photos

The race started on our channel start line in fine NE conditions. The wind was patchy at times during the race and on one leg had yachts just ghosting along. However four trailer yachts were still out when a blustery SW front came through right at the finish which caused a flurry of activity in reducing sail and regaining control.

The Race was run on Sunday 4 December under variable wind conditions later gusting up to 28 knots which gave the competitors plenty to contend with. Trailer yachts were the preferred option.
The winner was Angela Oswald, skippering ‘TENEKE’
Some PHOTOS  were taken on the calm section of the course before the change came through after which photography was impossible due to the waves and spray. One yacht withdrew as they were unable to reef their mainsail, leaving three to complete the course.
