2.4mR Worlds 4 - 10th of August 2018 in Gävle, Sweden

 

              

 

It was a great event, with various wind conditions, culminating in 2 hours sailing in 35knots

Meg, Steve and Jonny sailed well to complete the last race. Nev, having at last found his form (beating them all to the windward mark), unfortunately suffered pump failure and had to retire at the gate mark. I had persuaded myself that one more , exhilarating race, before packing up for home, was just what I needed, only to have my shroud break 2 minutes into the last race  (I was devastated- not) - I did however have a thrilling 40 minute surf back to the club in 35knots, with the starboard shroud, just hanging on  - the gybe at the end was something to behold! 

Take a look at the results of Race 9. Meg needed a win to beat Stellan... he sailed her down the fleet, tacking on her every move, she was such a treat . Go Megs!

 During the week, Nev's boat gained a name - "The Invisible Idiot" - hell tell you the story.
