Lipton Cup Challenge 2018

6 July, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 13 July, 2018 @ 10:00 pm

Race results after the completion of Race 5, a Windward Leeward course over 2 rounds finishing at the same place as the start. The race started at 11h15 under the ā€œUā€ flag and there were no boats that infringed the start line.

The race was sailed in an Easterly wind which ranged from about 8 to 10 knots at the start to about 45 to 5 knots at the finish. The boats maintained reasonable speeds throughout the race.

As the time limit for the race of 4 hours loomed ever closer, the boats crept slowly towards the line with RCYC finishing first at 14h52 and 50 seconds, setting the time limit clock in operation. 9 boats finished within the time limit of 30 minutes and the rest were unfortunately scored DNF.

Congratulations to RCYC on a magnificently sailed regatta counting a second in the first race and 4 first places thereafter.
