Today saw the first organised(ish) race at the temporary lake at Scotland Farm. 8 IOMs and 3 Dragons were in attendance with sundry onlookers and interested parties ranging in age from about 8 to a bit older.
The wind was cold from the north west about 10 mph but steady and consistent – something we never had at Apex pit.
Because boats were being lent, mainly by Mick, to encourage interested parties not everyone sailed in all races. I have tried to make allowances where possible and a ” best I can do”results list follows.
1st Martin 12 points 2 first places
2nd David 12 1 first place
3rd Gordon 21
4th Colin 25
5th Mick 29 Shared with a potential member
6th Alan 30
7th Ivan 33 Best position 2nd
8th Seymour 33 Best position 5th
Next Sunday is scheduled to be an RM event – it will be interesting to see if the deep keels can find the shallow places.
