June 26th: (1) Up to the am start

Wednesday June 26th: For the morning the start line extended northwards from the green Mylor fairway buoy to the race rib. There were two starts, first for the open boats and Bayraider Expeditions, second for the BayCruiser 23’s and 26’s.  The course was out to the red St Just buoy (leave to Starboard) then leaving the green East Narrows and St Mawes south CM to port before going up the Percuil River to leave Matt’s rib to port.Then back leaving St Mawes CM, and East Narrows to starboard with the finish line between the race rib and the St Just buoy. Then into Saint Just Creek for lunch.

The weather was grey with low cloud but, although forecast to increase, the wind was relatively light.
