Here's the Report from 258 The Start After the general recall, we moved down the line, away from the pack, and started mid-boat. At about 20 seconds to the gun we realized we were racing due to the flooding tide and seemed to still be a bit late to the line but a boat length ahead [...]

Race 3 Shields Fleet Nine. The race start was between Rose Island and Goat Island, with a dropped windward mark just past the dumplings in the center of the channel.
