More on the Grove Cup...
After a morning of no wind, it miraculously filled in just before the start of our long race to Westrow, just beyond Aldeburgh Yacht Club. We spinnakered all the way to ‘elbow’, took Westrow to port, (luckily AYC were not all rounding it when we did!), and then we enjoyed a windier beat back to Orford with assistance from the tide, making it in about 45 minutes, the race altogether lasting about 2 hours. All competitors found the conditions most enjoyable. Liz and Will led the whole way though it was a fun battle with Chris and Troy who gave them a hard time up to Elbow when Liz Will made their getaway.
Thanks to our OOD who made all the right decisions, our AOD who provided some welcome tea and yummy cakes on our return and to Malcolm and our new safety boat crew, Richard, who all made the event possible.
