Eagle Harbour Singlehanded Race Route
8.4 miles, 3:08:55 hrs (2:55:23 hrs corrected)Eagle Harbour Singlehanded Race which proved to be a classic Howe Sound race with the wind disappearing on the trip to Eagle Harbour and just before the start. On the trip to Eagle Harbour the current pushed me backwards as I tried to sail past Bird Island. This resulted in taking 32 minutes to cross the start line as we drifted backwards after the gun went off. The wind picked up in patches to make it a race after all. There still wasn't enough wind to complete a full twice around the course, but we looped round Bird Island. Great BBQ at the club house. Finished 3rd out of 3 in division B and 6th out of 8 in the entire race. Fantastic summer day racing.
