Scratch start for Club Championship: 12ft

Lane Cove Saturday 04.02.12

Big-rig Easterly.

LCC off the line in the light breeze just ahead of Gemmell Sails, shifty breeze all the way to Humbug, and out to the Parramatta. Long run down to Drummoyne, Gemmell Sails and Skol got pressure and pulled ahead of LCC, Gemmell Sails rounding well clear, LCC & Skol together. Long work to Manns Point Gemmell Sails 100 m clear, LCC and Skol trading tacks all the way. Gybing in & out of pressure & traffic on the run back, again Skol and LCC neck and neck, Gemmell Sails still 100m clear. Same scenario for the final work, Skol just ahead at the top mark, then a log-jam of boats at the gybe mark allowed LCC through. Into the river, Skol just behind, Gemmell Sails 150m ahead, Skol did not manage the shifts in Humbug and dropped back, finish order Gemmell Sails by 1m, LCC a further 1min ahead of Skol, and Vantage Real-Estate a further 30 seconds behind.
