Great start and headed the fleet to East Knoll and got the kite up for the leg to Salt Mead. Slight miscalculation at the mark and didn't drop the kite before rounding which in turn caused the kite to jam. Took a while to clear before we headed out into the tide across to West Lepe. Little breeze and strong adverse tide resulted in a very tricky rounding and a completely cocked up kite drop snapping the pole in half. Blazer got away from us on the beat past Solent Bank and then onto the finish at Yarmouth.
