7th July: Cowes – Dinard – St Malo race

On Friday 7th July I was booked on the 12-15 hrs.  and the 15-18 hrs. watches at NCI Stone Point.  Like from Moore security turned up at around 12:30 with a new joystick and keypad for the CCTV camera which finally got that working.  The starting sequence for the Cowes – Dinard – St Malo race was at 15:00.  It appeared that there were more than one starts and with an easterly wind the yachts came through the western Solent with spinnakers set.  It seemed the largest yachts started last and they came closer to the mainland compared to the rest of the fleet, allowing some photos.
