Puma Moth Worlds Day 1

The Worlds started today with a pretty light wind race, tricky conditions for all. Great news is the Brits did us proud with 4 in the top 10 – not a bad start!

Amac had a blistering race leading from the start, and a big gap by the finish. Mike Lennon came from behind to take 2nd – Nice work Mike! Si was 5th, Adam 6th and Ricky 9th (All results below). Tim’s boat broke – but we haven’t heard how! Thankfully Amac was on hand to carry out some major surgery: http://yfrog.com/caquonj
