Late notice for most I'm sure but we need extra crew for Shere Khan on Wednesday 16th in the non-spinnaker RANSA Wednesday afternoon race series.

Boat leaves RANSA dock at 1.pm for 1.40pm start.

Shere Khan is the leading Flying Tiger (1st scratch, 2nd handicap series). New sails 3 weeks ago. Bring your own beer!

Here's what a Wednesday Race can be like though there's a bit of a blow forecast for tomorrow.

Well after all that the promised 25-30 knots never materialised and we ended up in a 7-12 knot variable northerly breeze with the old main full of holes and new jib (changed just before the start).

After a rubbish start we were first to the windward mark and gradually got clear of the fleet on the downwind leg - but not enough to avoid coming 6th on handicap, despite being first over the line even - beating Quest from the bigger class 1S boats.

Still short of crew for the race on 14th September.

We are now 3rd overall just 2 points behind the leader.
