J-Class Falmouth Regatta, Day 5
Going into today’s racing all teams were on equal points and you could feel the tension. There was a heightened sense of urgency as any of the boats could win the regatta. Two windward-leeward races were the order of the day and with a healthy SW breeze the course was set along the coast. Upwind tacking battles ensued and the at the leeward mark Rangers spinnaker ended up wrapped around Velsheda’s bow. This then gave Lionheart the lead and the team went on the win the final race and the regatta.
