Corsica Classic 2015 – day 7

The final day of the event dawned with 15-18 knots of breeze from ENE funneling through the Straits of Bonifacio. Skylark made a conservative start on port tack at the Committee Boat end of the line. Whilst she was 10 seconds late for the gun, she it the line at full speed so within the first 3 minutes had already established a small advantage on the fleet positioned ahead and to windward.

A long port tack to round two isolated danger marks led into a long spinnaker reach to the finish. Skylark finished amongst the larger longer yachts Oiseau de Feu, Eileen and Seranade, giving her an overall victory in this race by 15 minutes.

The final race win gave Skylark an overal score of 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1 – six bullets and one 2nd which she then discarded leaving a perfect score of 1st places for the event.
