Despite a chilly night and some ice on arrival MDWS 3 went ahead today and 5 races were completed.
Tony Edwards, back from resting his robotic sailing skills took 3 wins from 5 races to secure a victory by a clear margin. The other two race victories were both taken by Britpops in the hands of Greg King and Darin Ballington. Some consistent 2nds saw Don Charlesworth in to 3rd place.
Manor Park next in two weeks with the first discard to count and the competition hotting up. Lets hope the weather does too!
NOR for MDCS 4 to follow. Booking in via the MYA calendar is open now.
The latest entry list can be viewed by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post
It is brilliant to see that there are 17 Midland skippers booked in already, for those not sure about entering all we can say is “do it”, the events are a great experience, good fun and an opportunity to meet like other skippers and maybe catch a few tips and ideas; with a number of fleets there will be plenty of skippers of similar abilities to you, whether you are a World Champion or “just here for the beer” why not join in.
For anyone who fancies getting involved in other ways please email Gordon Sears or Chris Harris to offer your services.
Unfortunately a layer of ice prevented any sailing at Bournville but a few of us including myself and David were invited up to Manor Park where a we had two or three hours of enjoyable racing on a completely ice-free lake , perfect top suit breeze and beautiful sunshine , we believe the event at Bournville has been rescheduled for two weeks time , so more news later on that,.
Sunday 22nd January it will be I.O.M at the lake , the weather at the moment looks quite settled and from today Tuesday is is set to warm up a bit. Dont forget you can always check the weather forecast by clicking the link at the top of this page. we have also been added to Google with a map , so if people type in Lincoln model yacht club it comes up with a link to our site ( through wordpress) and also a map of our location , I will need to check out how I can transpose the mape to our website .
