Polygon Group Pursuit 2016

This years pursuit race to Alderney was the first to officially include catamarans so there was much excitement as the handicaps are applied at the start with the slowest boats starting before the fastest. In this case the fastest was the Nacra F20 Carbon ‘Polygon’ which started some two and a half hours after the first boat! With very light winds forecast and a favourable tide for the early starters this was always going to be a struggle and after being totally becalmed for the first half an hour giving the first boats off an even bigger start. However, under full spinnaker ‘Polygon’ started to get into some breeze, picked up speed to about 16kts and fizzed past the majority of the fleet on the way up to Alderney. Unfortunately the chase was just to big on this occasion with ‘Polygon’ finishing in 3rd place overall.
