Cowes Week - Day 3 classic Cowes Week running start

The Solent delivered a north-westerly breeze that varied from eight knot lulls to 25 knot gusts for Day 3 of this year’s Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.

The Black Group yachts starting on the Bramble line first headed to the east on a tight spinnaker reach.

The wind was down to 10 knots for the start of IRC Class 3, where Jonathan Blanshard’s First 40.7 Space Race was one of the first boats away at the northern end of the line.

Mike Birmingham’s Corby 34 Oxygen lll was also well placed at the gun, but lost out in the early stages when they set a Code 0, instead of a spinnaker.

The White Group dayboats starting on the Royal Yacht Squadron line initially faced a very different challenge, short tacking against the tide along the Island shore.

The Victory fleet made a more aggressive approach to the line than earlier starters, with two boats over at the start.

Hugh Pringle’s Pelican returned immediately, followed around 40 seconds later by Gareth Penn’s Zircon.

After the first few tacks Duncan Evans’ Peregrine led the fleet, ahead of Mark and Joanna Dennington and Jim Downing’s Ziva and Kim and Sally Taylor’s Zest.

Pelican eventually made her way back up through the fleet to finish third, astern of Ziva and John Scammell and Maxine Reeves’ Zinnia.
