I am in favour of having Gordon at Falmouth despite being one of his
‘ victims ‘ at the Europeans .

I was but a millisecond from making an immaculate start at the pin end but hit it .

I gybed on to port and re-rounded crossing the start line on port and sailed behind the considerable number of boats leaving the line on
starboard .

On coming ashore after finishing 7th Gordon pointed out that I hadn’t
performed the correct manoevre but of course none of the other boats realised this .

Annoyingly I knew what I should have done having had the same situation
when I was race officer two weeks earlier but in the heat of the battle ….

I promptly retired from the race .

Do you knowwhat I should have done without looking at the rule book ?????
