The East Coast race (qualifier for the Fastnet) started at 1800 on Friday 16th June 2017 at Burnham-on-Crouch. A reasonable but light wind gave the yachts a good start and by 0600 the following morning they were rounding the Gabbard Wind Farm with leading yachts already heading for the Goote Bank Buoy.
Unfortunately the wind did not continue and throughout Saturday it got lighter and lighter. How ever the leading yachts still had tide with them and the first yacy "DJINN" finished at Oostende at 14.36. The first group of yachts all managed to finish between then and 20.43.
Unfortunately the wind had stopped all together by this time and most of the second group started to retire, wespecially those still out near the Goote Bank buoy. All arrived into Oostende with the exception of Cassiopeia who conrtinued to race finally finishing at 0541 on Sunday morning.
