Here are the LSC Handicap and Progressive Handicap results for the 5th Fast Cruise of the 2016-2017 season to Cowes on Saturday, 18 February 2017.
Once again all of the boats taking part in the rally sailed the same course which saw us sailing in the Central Solent. We had an unseasonably warm, sunny day with a distinct lack of wind as the race progressed, which found the fleet moving slowly (or in some cases quite speedily) backwards with the tide. Attempts to progress using spinnakers proved futile and anchors were finally deployed by many boats which, unusually, provided an opportunity for lunch mid-race! With no sign of the wind filling in, the organisers shortened the course and the fleet painstakingly made its way to the finishing line.

We look forward to seeing you all in the Hamble on Saturday, 25 March 2017 for the final Fast Cruise of the season and the Prize-Giving Dinner at the Royal Southern YC.
