At the start FGO hit the line on time and with speed like a bat out of hell and footed fast across the river on starboard, pursued by RBO to windward and then XWP with AFB unusually lagging a bit, short-handed.
It was smooth running to Glades albeit very tight as the mark was approached, kites dropped early, then a nice work back to Abbotsford then the run to Frances. Another good work up to Lukes followed, where the first tallship came through very late when we left the door open a tad to make sure to not hit the mark and let them in under us as they tacked from port to stbd and held momentum around the mark. Nice move LOEG but a quick gybe inside and kite set made amends and off we went to Frances again, with FGO, AFB and XWP in hot pursuit. The breeze lightened a bit and the run and work to the finish uneventful.
On hcap it was RBO followed very closely by XWP in a top effort, FGO and AFB.
