Sunday 30th September saw brisk winds from the south west for this RM meeting, seven yachts came to the line 5 Marbleheads and 2 I.O.M small sails were called for many opting for C suits and the 2 IOM’s going to B suit, a windward leeward course was set with almost 2 laps to complete , Bob the G Geary soon showed his dominance with three straight wins before Ivan had had a chance to chance to catch his breath and take race 4 but normal service was resumed for race 5 and race 6 ,, Interestingly to see Colin post two good results in race 1 and two a third and a second before retirement ruled him out ,, If Colin can do a bit of maintenance and keep the water on the out side of the boat he could be a threat to us all , ( the pot is under the pot by the back door) Our potential new member David is certainly getting the hang of things and I for one was pleased with the way he is handling his boat, I am pretty sure that come 2013 he will be giving us all a run for our money , top spot went to Bob and very much the same for the Marion’s trophy but with more gusty conditions, Bob romped home again sometimes winning by a huge margin , We all packed up a tad early as the rain was threatening, but I have to say it was a great day’s racing on a weed free Apex well done to all and see you next week for the IOM showdown,.
Hi guys and Gals this Sunday is I believe the last big event for Marbleheads so a good attendance is required for the Bob Orr Memorial Trophy in the morning 10 am start and the Marions RM Trophy in the afternoonP.M, I am confident our weed problems are nearly behind us and the weather forecast looks great , with no rain at all as I write , Look forward to seeing you soon
