Planing to the line

August 15, 2018

 

The 2018 Oxford Sailing Club Windsurf Championships were held on Saturday 11th August .

 

Conditions were warm and periodically sunny but with an erratic south / southwest wind, building during the day to over 15 knots.

 

Winds coming over Cumnor Hill are notoriously tricky and the wind on Saturday was no exception with major shifts, holes and gusts, particularly in the vicinity of the windward mark.

 

By the fourth and final race Andy Lacy, Ady Rippington and Russ Canning had each won one race so the last race was to be the decider.

 

In a rising wind all three boards planed over the finish line nose to tail, with Andy winning , followed by Ady and Russ.
