Crewing a TOM in the 5 Clubs Regatta Calpe on Sunday 19 May

Categories:

The Rumbo Solidario and 5 Clubs Regatta took place at the Real Club Náutico Calpe (RCNC) on Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 May 2019.

Due to the shortage of CBYA member-owned yachts, and CBYA crew positions, we again entered a TOM 28 in the 5 Clubs Regatta on the Sunday. The crew comprised Paul Smithard, Andy Symons, Mike Cross and “yours truly” on the helm.

The TOM 28 rating puts us in ORC-B, which means that we have to sail the longer 16 km course down to the Albir fish-farm, back up to Calpe bay, then out to sea before rounding the final mark and returning to the finish line.

Jim Mack crewed on another TOM 28 entered by Angie Roper for RCNC. We decided that, since our rating was unlikely to allow us to get a podium result, we would concentrate on racing Angie and Jim!
