Above: Leaving Korcula
Well, I said on my last blog we were hoping for more wind. And that is just what we got! By popular request ( in fact our Corinthian friends) it was agreed we should do an informal race - no handicaps, plus the new Little Ship rule developed in the Channel Islands cruise for racing in no wind (switch on the engine!...). So we set off beating Eastwards in light airs . Seven or eight long tacks later at around 2knots we had just got round the point, to find the wind had backed round to the south west and died, as we set off south westwards to Lastovo. So the rule (and engine) was engaged! We arrived last, but were adjudged the winners as the boat that must have sailed longest!
