RAYC News - J/109 Jedi Wins Royal Alfred's Offshore Series
Following an excellent four race series, the final positions in the Royal Alfred Yacht Club (RAYC) Offshore Series run in association with ISORA have been published writes RAYC Commodore Barry MacNeaney.
In the Gold Fleet it was the last race that decided the result as "Jedi's" (Andrew Sarratt) magnificent first place allowed a discard on race two and they just pipped "Ruth" (Liam Shanahan) at the post! A margin of one point at the finish – it could not have been closer!
In the Silver fleet "Polished Manx" took a commanding lead from early in the Series. It was unfortunate that there were not more competitors in the last race as "Polished Manx" did not compete and "Windshift" , who did compete and finished well could not amass the points needed to overtake them. Well done to "Polished Manx"!
