Commentary
Twenty-four hours before the start of this little in-port race, it looked like it was going to be one of the shortest ever sprints and a major exercise in pseudo-boathandling on board our Volvo 70 beasts; the challenge being how to keep performance above 92%. But then the weather changed and in any other boat than a 70, a long drifter till the early hours of the European dawn would have been on the cards. Not in our Volvo 70s though, so what we got was a race with a lot of wind strategy and another mighty weather change a half hour after the start, to challenge us further, as we tried to look ahead whilst simultaneously rounding tricky capes and islands. The beauty of wrf modelling superimposed on light air synoptics!

A tricky race then, and all will surely say they made mistakes, expect perhaps rafa, who gave us a near-faultless display of routing and cornering, taking the win by a mere 7 seconds, mind you, from limesinferior, making a welcome return to sol after having been away. Impressive stuff from both solers!!
