Lloyd Fryer Race this weekend

The Lloyd Fryer Pursuit Race  is on this Saturday with a Lovely silver Rose Bowl trophy is presented to the winner plus wine/chocolates for placings.

In particular there is a lovely glass bowl for presentation to the first junior.

A Pursuit race is where the boats saila fixed course with a staggered start the slowest boats starting first and the fastest ones the last if all the boats are sailed equally well they should finish at exactly the same time. Thus in theory the best sailor no matter what the boat should win. (more words saying roughtly the same thing but with more details can be found here https://www.scsc.org.je/wp-content/uploads/2007-4-Pursuit-Racing1.pdf)

Hope to see you there
