J Class Solent Regatta overall

J Class Solent Regatta 2012
Following a delayed start at the J Class Solent Regatta, the fleet got away cleanly with Velsheda first at the port end and Ranger last off at the starboard end.

At the first leeward mark, Solent Bank, Velsheda had a commanding lead followed by Rainbow, Lionheart and Ranger.

At the second leeward mark, Velsheda was still leading but Rainbow, still behind Lionheart, called for an overlap and forced Lionheart to give her inside rounding, so Rainbow came through to second.

The finish, which should be about 2.30 p.m., will be off Egypt Point, Cowes giving another spectacular finish, as was enjoyed yesterday by the crowds who got there in time.
