Wilson Cup Results

The second event in the Joint Passage Race series organised in conjunction with the Royal Forth was the Wilson Cup held in gorgeous sunshine on 7 July.  10 boats ‘braved’ the unusual elements of soaring temperatures, sunshine and little wind for a pleasant, exciting, frustrating (delete as appropriate) 5 hour race where the latter half of the fleet finished within a minute of each other.

Overall results were as follows with the Forth Corinthian boats in bold denoting the finishing order of the Wilson Cup race within the race:

  1. Kestra
  2. Hannah
  3. Misty Blue (1st)
  4. Wizz Too
  5. Brave (2nd)
  6. Meteor
  7. Eclipse (3rd)
  8. SmiJ (4th)

(Apparition and Kashangi II retired)


Friday White Sail Results

The first two Friday White Sail races were abandoned due to lack of wind so it was a bit of a relief to get the series off the ground on 22 June where the results of FWS 3 were as follows:

  1. Kashangi II
  2. Smij
  3. Eclipse
  4. Indulgence

The same four boats contested the Friday White Sail 4 on 6 July with the following slightly different finish:

  1. Kashangi II
  2. Indulgence
  3. Eclipse
  4. SmiJ

Congratulations to John and crew on Kashangi for a clean sweep so far as we look forward to the next instalment on Friday 20 July.
