Rob Lyne wins Albacore Open at Lyme Regis Rob Lyne wins Albacore Open at Lyme Regis

We arrived at Lyme Regis for the Albacore and Scorpion open meeting on a lovely sunny morning but no wind we rigged up and got held on the beach for a while finally the wind filled in a bit and we all left for the start line. 

The first race got off to a good start and we rounded the first mark in the top five making our way up to second very quickly then as we rounded the leeward mark the wind died completely and we drifted with the tide away from the mark allowing the guys behind us the come around in front of us. When the wind filled in we were last with very little of the race to make up the places but with a big push we got back to second in two legs and finished right on Mikes transom. The second race went a little more to plan we got a good start rounding the first mark 50m in the lead and just pulled away finishing over a leg in front. Then the wind disappeared again and the next race was cancelled. 

The Sunday was more of the same wind all over the place and after getting a great start again we were looking good to round the first mark well in the lead but the wind shifted 30 degrees and dropped to next to nothing and the three boats on the right side got the wind first a just got ahead of us but again we managed to get past a couple of then and as we came to complete the first lap the race officer shorted the race and we finished at the leeward mark and then the wind went completely and the race officer abandoned the rest of the day. So we had won the meeting on only the second time out.
