Started towards the outer distance end of the line for the beat down to the Needles and made reasonable progress. Quite good coming into the Needles from Hurst and spinnaker up once we had rounded the wreck. Jibed after St Catherine's and seemed to be going better on the leg to Bembridge. Just in front of The Fish at the buoy and held them off until they cut the corner at the Western end of Ryde sands. Beat all the way to the finish and initially thought we had a reasonable result but the low raters all came in too close behind and took the top places.
