James and Ed take bronze at Kiel
James Peters and Ed Fitzgerald pulled through to take 3rd place at Kiel Week with their most consistent day of the regatta. Organisers were keen to launch the fleet promptly to ensure that 3 races could be completed having missed a day with strong wind yesterday. The fleet was split into Gold and Silver, with the Gold fleet launching first and starting their first race at 10.35. James and Ed scored 2,2,3 in gusty, shifty conditions which few were able to be consistent in. The girls found the conditions a bit more challenging, but Becky Diamond and Fiona Hampshire completed a good series, which included 2 bullets, with a 4th in the final race leaving them 5th overall and first girls. Frances Peters and Claire Lasko were just behind in 6th overall putting together a consistent series.
