International D-ONE Association (65)

IMG 0360With a poor forecast and several regular D One sailors on 'other duties' a small fleet assembled at Oxford SC on the 1st and 2nd of April for the first event of the 2017 Travellers Trophy.  Contrary to the forecast of light wind and rain the fleet headed out into a sunny force 3 on Saturday afternoon. 

Race one got under way with Oxford local Terry Brookes nailing the first beat to round ahead of Paul Birbeck and Nick Crickmore.  As these 3 took off downwind Chris Sallis gybe-set to hook up some good pressure on the left and pulled through to lead at the leeward buoy. Terry continued to chase but some loose covering saw Chris take the win.  Race two started in similar conditions with a tight first beat and downwind, this time Terry led at the bottom buoy  followed by Nick and Chris.  With the wind starting to swing left and right Chris found a passing lane on the upwind and managed to pull ahead into a comfortable lead with Terry taking second and Paul third.  Race three saw Terry going quickly on the first downwind and then extend his lead over Chris and Paul. 

So at the end of a great afternoons sailing Chris and Terry were separated by 1 point with Paul rounding out the top three.
