A close finish for the Cockburn 9 fast fleet yesterday, with the first 3 boats crossing the line within 45 seconds after 1.5 hours of racing. Rockhopper took their first (of many?) line honours victory, with Hullabaloo winning on Handicap. Hero had already wrapped up the series though, with Hullabaloo taking second and J Star third.
Over in the cruiser fleet White Spirit took their fifth win giving them a perfect score line in a series that’s scored on the best five results. UII were second, which also gave them second in the series. Kindred Spirit weren’t on the start line but took third in the series.
As all nine of the Cockburn series races had a valid set of results there’s no need for the reserve race on 5 November – so this is hereby cancelled.
The next race is the first of the Winter series: these all start from Avonmouth on Sunday mornings:
W1: 06/11 09:30
W2: 20/11 10:00
W3: 04/12 08:40
Before then there’s a handicap review on 03/11 – these take place twice a year before and after the Cockburn series – I’ll endeavour to publish these on 04/11 before the next race: watch this space!
