Tigris - 19 second series + RORC 2020 Summer Series, Race 3

By James_C
The J/88 Tigris sailed by Sam Cooper carries too much sail at the start of the down wind leg of yesterday's Royal Ocean Racing Club Summer Series race. A sheltered 42 nmile course was set for the windy F6-7 conditions.
The race was won by the Sun Fast 3300 Fastrak XII, sailed by Henry Bomby. Tigris was 9th.

Versions 4&5 have that aha! moment about them...a few intakes of breath onboard, methinks...
Great series of images, James.

Clearly in V3-7, she was seriously overpowered...carrying too much sail.

Do you sail James?

I sailed all my life Peter 'till health problems forced me to stop in 2008. I then raced a radio controlled IOM (International One Metre class). I'm now planning to take up the radio controlled Laser class, which is raced here in Cowes.

Cheers
