Autumn Parhelion - Week 4

And another great day of PSC Parhelion racing is complete! RO Ricky Hodgeson started all 14 boats together for a long race that took the fleet back and forth between North Sturbridge and many of the racing marks that lie between Gilkicker and Spit Sand Fort. The fastest boat (John Donnelly's White Cloud IX) completed the course in 2hr 15mins with the slower boats finishing around an hour later however there was plenty to keep crews interested with the fleet crossing each other several times.
It was particularly good to see three new competitors - the Sigma 33s Shadowfax and Workout (from a charity that provides young people the opportunity to try yacht racing http://www.shadowfaxracing.org.uk/) and the Hunter Impala Spectrum with a team from Surrey University. We hope to see them back again very soon.
White Cloud won the IRC Fleet, One More Knot the Club Fleet and newcomers Shadowfax and Workout took first and second in the NHC.

The racing was followed by some excellent food at PSC. Many thanks to all those that helped out on the committee boat and providing food back at the clubhouse..

Autumn Parhelion Week 3

The third Parhelion Saturday was held in very breezy conditions this week.

Fleet numbers were, not surprisingly, down a little from previous weeks and several boats suffered gear failure and headed home early. Two races were set, the first extending to around 2 hours but providing some extremely close results with Easy Tiger 2 beating One More Knot in the Club fleet by just 6 seconds.

Autumn Parhelion Day 2

The PSC Parhelion fleet had a couple of interesting races this morning; no sunshine but a fluky breeze with some holes in around some heavy clouds and rain.

Race Officer Daryl Bowles set both races with initial legs from Gleeds towards N Sturbridge; during the first heavy rain played havoc with the find speed and direction - however One More Knot managed to play the shifts (and holes) well to open up a lead of over 10 minutes by the finish.

The wind had backed around to the South and eased by the start of the second race; conditions that clearly suited Easy Tiger who had her best performance of the series, beating One More Knot into second place.

Autumn Parhelion Day 1

The first two races of the Autumn Parhelion Series were held in beautiful sunshine and southerly breeze last Saturday.  Race Officer Ricky Hodgeson established a start in the vicinity of racing mark KB Drystack and set courses of around 7 miles that kept the competitors busy between the forts and Gilkicker but avoiding the Imperial Poona YC and Victory Class who were 'racing' just off the Haslar Wall!  Familiar boats dominated the front of the fleets with Tinker T and One More Knot gaining firsts in the IRC and NHC fleets respectively.  Full results are here -
