GlobalCapital Gozo Weekend Regatta 2008 – Results – Race: 2.

Race No.2 in the GlobalCapital Gozo Weekend Regatta started at 1100hrs and included Fessej Rock and twice round the Island of Comino. A Steady westerly breeze saw the fleet beat up towards Fessej Rock with a few daring close moves close to the shore. Once round the rock, skippers hoisted their spinnakers and headed towards the South Comino. This leg didn't allow much overtaking due to the light winds which were in the region of 8 to 10 knots of true wind speed. Once round Comino sailors had a pleasant beat towards the Mgarr Harbour breakwater and back up to Fessej Rock. In IRC A, Artie Go had a better race than yesterday and was always vying for a very good position during the race.
In IRC B, Mischief and Sailaway were always very close to each other and both sailed a really good race whilst Blue Fin and Maarial, with identical ratings, raced boat for boat all the way to the finish line, with just some 20 seconds separating them with Maarial just ahead.

Another perfect spinnaker hoist for most of the fleet and a consistent breeze all the way back round Comino and in the beat back to Mgarr Harbour.
Kerisma really gained on this leg and won in IRC A whilst Martin Meachen was burning rubber in IRC B and got his second bullet of the weekend. Both boats won their classes with Breezer winning the 473 class again.
Tomorrow's race will be a passage race towards Malta with the Prize Giving Ceremony being held at the RMYC in the evening.
