“Great day, stunning racing,” commented FAST40+ Class Race Director, Stuart Childerley after racing was concluded at the RORC Vice Admiral’s Cup. “The breeze initially filled in at 6 knots from 260º during the three Windward Leeward races. For the final race round the buoys , we had everything from 290º – 010º and 4-18 knots, including a big shower. The last race was a fantastic sight, really close racing with the boats nose to tail for the duration.”

The FAST40+ fleet racing in Round One of the 2019 FAST40+ Class Race Circuit, started the last day of the RORC Vice Admiral’s Cup with Niklas Zennstrom’s Rán leading the series counting only four first places, having discarded a fifth place scored in yesterday’s third race. However, four boats, separated by only two points, were locked in battle for second overall.

Michael Bartholomew’s Tokoloshe II led this group on 12 points, ahead of Steve Cowie’s Zephyr and Peter Morton’s Girls on Film, who were tied on 13 points, while Niall Dowling’s Arabella held fifth overall on 14 points.

The class had three short races today, with the first in a building east-south-east breeze and a strengthening east-going tide. Girls on Film and Tokoloshe II both started prematurely, while Ed Fishwick’s Redshift bailed out early before the gun, gybing onto port. Redshift then held out alone on the right hand side of the course, before leading into the windward mark on the port layline, tacking a length ahead of Rán.

They were followed by Zephyr, which had a small lead on Fillip Englebert’s Elvis and Tokoloshe II, with all three overlapped on the short spreader leg. By the finish Zephyr had slipped back to fifth place, while Redshift took second place, six seconds ahead of Girls on Film in third place.

In the next two races Rán scored a first and third, finishing the series with a commanding overall lead of nine points. A second and fourth for Girls on Film was just enough for Morton to secure second overall, half a point ahead of Tokoloshe’s final score of 22.5.

“We’ve had big tides and big windshifts, which made for tight layline calls,” says Rán navigator Tom Needham. “It’s great that the race committee was able to get so many races off in tricky conditions and we’ve been really happy to see all the boats on the water, including new teams, for the first FAST40+ event this year.

“Today we were racing in deeper water, with big differences in the tide across the course – there were some big tide lines out there – so there were big gains or losses depending on which end of the line you started.”

Round Two of the FAST40+ Class Race Circuit will take place outside the Solent. Organised by the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Poole. Friday 14th – Sunday 16th June 2019. Eight races are scheduled in Poole Bay with Après sailing social, Crew Supper and Prize Giving during the three day regatta.
