Summer Solent and Laid Marks Doubles – always the bridesmaid…..

The inshore series taking place within the Royal Southampton Double-handed main series has fallen into a clear pattern.  The second and third races were repeats of the first one back in early April at least as far as we were concerned, with Huw Philips and Mike Moxley bring HOD 35 Malice home a few minutes ahead of Mostly Harmless on corrected time.  With three firsts out of the four races in the inshore series, they are home and dry, and with three seconds, our second place overall is secure irrespective of what happens in the final race in this series in mid October.
