Glyn Charles Pursuit @ Hisc

Who is going then chaps?

Only Paul of the multitude of HISC 100s is entered so far and judging by his performance at Bruinisse he will be decidedly hungover.

My boat will still be on the trailer, so was thinking of coming along, but would like to sail more than one other 100!

    Well I’m certainly going to be there so there’s another one for you to race against. Pre-entering for a HISC pursuit race feels alien so I’ll be entering on the day, I assume there’ll be others. Nick will probably be out if he doesn’t decide that an 800 has a better chance of winning. One of team HISC is race officer but there could be another couple there (will Simon finally get his new boat wet?). And who knows, maybe the d-ones will be there as well?

    I think that Nick is 800ing. Sam is talking about coming. I think Dad will sail and I am sure there will be other guys entering on the day.

    I will be sailing on Saturday, as is Nick, the old man and there are usually about 4/5 boats out without the Childs clan.

    If anyone fancies coming on Saturday & sailing Nick out the back of the fleet I’d be grateful as there’s a series depending it…

    I am hoping to launch the new ship – Sailing Saturday and Sunday ! (Simon C)

    Holy moly that was hard work. A 2.3 mile beat, almost entirely on port tack, to start off. Then a 2.3 mile kite leg with a big dog-leg that necessitated going single-sail for nearly 1/2 of the leg. Followed by a near 2 mile beat (with dog-leg) before another kite leg back. All of this in 12-18kts of breeze. There was so much hiking. Oh, and all the beats were into the tide.

    This was, clearly, never going to be a 100 glory run but there were still moments of sublime beauty; Clive & I duelling our way back from itchenor under spinnaker, streaking away from the asy vortex on the kite leg back from emsworth. We had five boats on the start line; Paul was lead 100 in 65th, Mike Mac was 75th, I was 80th, Clive 93rd and James Cunnison (possibly his first race in his dad’s boat) in 102nd. Top marks to James Peters for winning in a 200, bonus congrats to the guy in the mirror who finished 5th. If any of that sounded like fun then you’re all welcome to join us for Fed Week which is a whole week of that sort of racing…
