Farr 45 racing solent

Last weekend saw a selection of different classes racing in the Warsash organised spring series big boat challenge. Some 8 farr 45s competed against each other in 2 days of racing off the bramble bank in the Solent.

I was racing on the Atomic Farr 45 team, we had mixed results over the weekend, but importantly made big gains and ended with really good results on the Sunday, a 1st and 2nd.

The Saturday was a windy affair with about 15 knots and saw us using the code 3 jib all day, this was tough as our sail had been damaged in its last outing, but the repair had changed the characteristics of the sail a great deal and it was very difficult to sail to. We ended the day with one podium and two other average results.

Sunday was a much better day for the Atomic team and after some changes to the rig over night, the boat was much easier to sail and this translated into results straight away. with a 1st and 2nd from the day, we finished the weekend on a high and looking forward to the next regatta the vice admirals cup.

All the best.
