Algeciras to Ceuta/ Sailing Gibraltar

This weekend saw the 4th Algeciras to Ceuta 2 handed race, with light airs and strong tides, the sailing across the straits of Gibraltar proved to be the make or break on the overall race strategy. This along with dying breeze once in the bay of Ceuta led to nailbiting close racing.
Seawolf crossed the line first with a lead of over 8 minutes on the next yacht Queen Veli, however the corrected time gave Queen Veli victory with Seawolf second by a margin of only 8 seconds, followed by Tucana in third place. Of the 18 boats that made the start only 11 completed the course to Ceuta.
