Cundy place order
The Cundy long distance race was held because the SE wind seemed favourable; it was concurrent with the Summer 11 race. Mike Baker was 1st on PH (and BH) so won the Cundy Trophy. The upstream mark was just above the downstream end of Rivermead Island at Sunbury; it was dropped ahead of the lead boat 25 minutes into the race aiming for a race time of 1 hour. Unfortunately the wind died near the mark; Mike had a huge lead and finished at 55 minutes, 20 minutes ahead of the next boat and an hour ahead of the last finisher; the mark should have been further downstream taking Mike's big lead into account. In future we need to also consider the rest of the fleet when dropping the top mark.
