Helford Mini-Scillies

Tough racing conditions made for a long slog up the Helford River course for all crews during this weekend’s racing. MA managed to find themselves in the midst of a heavy hailstorm and all had to battle against strong gusting winds trying to blow them back to sea.

MA won the men’s vets race by a long margin. Whilst the supervets were delighted to finish the same race in 9th (out of 11). Men’s B performed really well and came 6th out of 20, just 5 places behind MA who raced again in the main men’s event and came 2nd in a very close finish with Falmouth.

Ladies B did the main Ladies race as well as the vets and finished 11th (out of 14) and then 16th overall. Ladies A led the main women’s race for the first third but were overtaken by Helford and held to the line in 2nd place out of 17 boats.
