Day - 4, 25/05/2012

The jinx broke with the duo from the RMYC Bombay Mr. Upmanyu Dutta and Mr.Hussain Arassiwalla 1st. in all the three races of today. It may have been the briefing or the golden touch [from the 5 times Asian Games Medalist and 3 times Olympic sailor Commander Farookh Tarapore who is in Chennai to oversee the Nationals in this 420 class of boat – a boat sailed at the Asian Games and a stepping stone to it’s older sibling the 470] that saw the fleet tighten and positions change like never before in this regatta. Also, commendable was the performance of Commander Atool Sinha [Asian Games Silver Medalist in Match Racing at China] and crew Ashok Kumar finish 2nd. in one race. Today, the weather looked all set to play the spoilt sport but was incredible instead … despite the fact that the wind never shifted direction to come from the ocean [SE] and breeze till the end of the day it stayed steady and strong. The swell in the ocean was in excess of 1.5 meters and this gave the brave added benefit on the down winds.

The Festival of Sails to win The GAMESA Trophy saw a superb spectacle of several classes of boats sailing in a combined race with sailors from an age group of 8 to 70 years of age … all racing together. This event is being run to introduce the sport to newcomers of all ages. Today’s two races were won by Capt. Vivek Shanbhag’s boat.
