To celebrate the arrival of Summer at Croydon Sailing Club (for one weekend at least), we decided to give a new form of pursuit race a try: Le Pursuit.
Inspired by Le Mans, it’s a standing start on the pontoon and when the horn blows and your dinghy class is called, run to your boat, jump in a go, go, go!
A few impressive running-diving-pushing-off starts, a few not so good. A few clearly can’t tie a highway man’s hitch as well as they thought and few got it just right. All in all a fantastic day in the Sun, and congratulations to Neil (first race) and Tony (second race), winners of the first of what we hope will be many Le Pursuits.
