Did a few timed runs before the start but the wind dropped off a bit as we made our final approach so not that close to the line but in a good clear position to make good progress with sheets eased. Kept ahead of Blazer and made up on most of the Impalas except for Polly who we caught but couldn't get past. Wind picked up and tuned into a proper beat which favoured the bigger boats and allowed them to pull away. Short hop from Hill Head to East Bramble then kite up to the finish at Gurnard. Still ahead of a lot of the fleet but not sure if we were close enough to Raffles so pleased with a 4th place by just one second ahead.
