Pollensa RCNPP
The last regatta of Liga de Primavera of RCNPP had been moved from Saturday to Sunday with very short notice, what decreased the number of participating boats to 3. Triffid with Steve Parry and Teresa could stay in the lead of FFs from start to finsh and and had no problems with the strong winds and gusts of well beyond 25 knots. Dragonfly tried to clean the kite below the boat and showed extended acrobatics including backward sailing, to free the sheets from the keel. Dragonfly still became second because Swampfire successfully tried to explore the submarine abilities of flying (diving) Fifteens. In a strong gust the crew stayed well in front of the cockpit what the boat understood as order to dig the bow int the bow into the sea. The following unexpected stop did not only convert the cockpit into and whirlpool but also made the crew fly without Fifteen and into the water. Following their own description of the event, they had not really understood, what had happened in these seconds and after making their boats sailable again, they did the same again. This time they asked for help to get the full boat back to the harbour. The passing yachts did not want to loose their position in the regatta, but a small motorboat brought them back.
