Perfect conditions for racing at Porthoustock today, hosted by Coverack gig club with a veritable spectacle of cakes in the refreshments tent. A light offshore breeze meant clean flat water right by the beach (if a little congested with drysuit clad divers emerging from time to time!). The beach makes an interesting backdrop more akin to a post-apocalyptic movie set, quite unlike the golden sands of many Cornish beaches but it has a charm all of its own.
We only had crews available for Mens-B and Ladies-B races but what a great couple of races. Mens-B with Justin in his first race finished a very creditable 5th from 15. Ladies-B belted off the line, held a lead to the first mark, avoided a rogue dive boat on the racing line and pushed hard to keep Lark at bay in the last 50 metres to cross the line FIRST!
