DAY 7 – SANDOWN, IoW TO PEGWELL BAY, E KENT

Start: 1000utc
From: 50.65 / -1.16
To: 51.32 / 1.36

On the last day of practice matchracing the fleet that departed Sandown was a little smaller than before but with one new addition, chrissq. Winds were 12kts from the NE but due to back and strengthen and then veer and weaken so the approx. 112nm to Pegwell Bay should take about 10hrs altogether.

By 1200utc the fleet was spread across a front of 2.49nm and there was only 0.3nm in straight-line distance to go between #1 and #9!!

1500utc saw the main group 51nm (straight line) from Pegwell Bay, at this stage werner and newsartist were taking a more central-Channel course, and chrissq and pc were a few nm behind. As pc had started 15mins late, that he had closed the gap so well was remarkable.

1730utc and the fleet is not nearly so spread. While pc is about 28nm from the finish (straight line dtg) and werner and newsartist can be found steaming up the Channel, the main “gaggle” who are sailing very tightly together are about 27nm (crows flight) from Pegwell. Vic has said that one of the most uncomfortable night moorings he ever experienced was at Pegwell – here's hoping this practice fleet have a more enjoyable time before race day dawns!

1830utc – what a difference an hour makes. The fleet is now split – offshore are Scott and Vic followed by woody55 and werner, and close inshore are pc, robert and batchg while Rainbow is placed between these two groups. News is now closer to France than England and chrissq has headed France-wards – as nothing has been heard from this SOLer it may be that they were only coincidentally at Sandown for the start this morning.

Just after 2100utc the winner of today's race, batchg, romped into Pegwell Bay, closely followed by Vic and the Siamese Twins (robert and Scott). The rest of the fleet arrived thereafter.

The results for today then are

1st batchg
2nd Vic
3rd robert
4th Scott
5th pc
6th Rainbow
7th werner
8th woody55
9th newsartist
After seven days of informal matchracing, the fleet are now running to the Start Line - whoever is closest by 1230utc on 7 February will be the winner!

The results for the 7 days racing were scored according to the new 2010 F1 points system and the totals just simply added up - those who raced in fewer races obviously got less points! - and are as follows:


robert SWE 113
batchg AUS 98
Vic GBR 91
Scott AUS 89
Salmon NED 67
Rainbow GBR 50
Samr NED 45
pc GBR 41
CG GBR 32
sassy SWE 29
woody55 GBR 29
Smo FIN 25
werner GBR 17
Aztec AUS 16
newst USA 13

The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
