The RNIYC Virtual fleet took to the “water” again this week on the Virtual Regatta Inshore App. 4 races in 4 different boats. J/70, Star keelboat, 49er dinghy, Nacra 17 foiling catamaran, and then finished off with a practice race in the F50 America’s Cup style foiling 50 foot cats.
The word doing the rounds was that Sam Lyness was not only getting lots of practicing in, but also watching training videos on youtube! Clearly it paid off, as Sam was the outright daily winner.
The next 4 places were separated by just 1 point, with Leah McCleave lying second.
The sailors have been having great fun racing, while not giving an inch on the race-course! Plenty of penalties, mistakes, and simply getting lost! Leah and Brick couldn’t find the leeward marks in one race! As with normal racing, there were breakages too, but rather than to the boats, it was internet outages causing the problems.
Well done Sam, and see you all next week.
