Altea 5 Clubs – Sunday 20th October
The Altea 5 Clubs was a regatta of two halves for TrickyD. A downwind run to the Calpe fish farm, with TrickyD and her crew enjoying the 20 knot plus winds.
After rounding the fish farm, and sailing close-hauled on our homeward leg, we were hit by 35 knots of wind gusting to 45 knots. After reefing down, we decided to retire.
On our return, we joined the rest of the crews for a delicious paella at the Club Náutico Altea.
Our friends of the CBYA, Jeffertje ll (Carl Bal) came in 1st in Class A
Gordi (Gordon Ross ) – 5th in Class C
Blade – CBYA (Barry McCrea ) – Our own CBYA member, was 6th in Class C
