Another fantastic day greeted 16 competitors who came to the line for round 6 of the International One meter’s Class. Light winds from the West gave the boats a tricky beat, and eased sheets were the order of the day to keep the boats moving . Mick C’s new AB4 hit the water for the first time and had a dream start winning the first race although an element of luck may have played a part , It was nice to see Bill Cox 07 making his first visit to the lake since joining, and showing of one of his Triple Crowns , It was also nice to see some wives at the lake side relaxing whilst the husbands got on with the serious side of things , Bob Geary in a borrowed Brit Pop showed what can be done when you upgrade with a fine second place overall, also two very good performances by the older Gadget design with both Mick Hunt 14 and Colin Marsden 35 gaining three victories between them during the morning.
A notable absentee was Martin Lambert who I am pleased to report sends his best regards to you all and will be hoping to be released from hospital during the coming week and will be hoping to join us for next weeks all day event on the 29th June , Get well soon Martin we miss you .
You will all see from the results that there was some very good sailing from many club members and you will no doubt be looking at the race you have discarded,, to see if perhaps you could have done a little better next time . I felt the rules were played out very fairly, but I would urge you all to brush up with the rules game on the website,, it is a lot of fun and there is a level of competence for everyone so test yourself and see if you can come up with all the right answers, I must confess I still don’t every time !!!!!
