KIP Pursuit Races - Series 1

What a great start to the season for our Kip Members last week.

Fair winds on a lovely night and 6 boats started and finished.

The first course of the season was "A" with revised start times taking some advantage away from bigger faster boats.

First across the finish line was new member John Aikman in Expresso, so well done John and welcome to the club and pursuit races at Kip.

Second was Breagha closely followed by Clyde Calypso and Prospero, bringing up the rear was Devil's Aye and De-Ja-Vue. Second to fourth were only a minute or so apart showing that the revised handicaps are working quite well so far.

A good night was enjoyed by all and the banter in the bar afterwards was flowing well.

Have a great season and see you all next week.
