A dull damp day greeted 18 competitors for round four of this exciting series , A couple of visitors from Rotherham came along , and racing started on the south bank to a north westerly breeze around 8/10 knots. Straight out of the blocks was Dave Burke with his new shaped fin and Bulb and judging by his performance throughout the day it is a vast improvement, as the fin was covered while the boat was on the bank nobody got a clear view, and all we know it came from Europe, and not the UK as first thought, any way enough of all that. Jen Hand had a bad first race but quickly got in her stride with some good results, Jen getting a second on the day was a worthy performance. Dave Thomas sailing his Cheinz also sailed very well and finally got the win in last race of the day, Sam Gill showed some spirited races with his MX14 and certainly enjoyed his racing. Unfortunately Bob Geary had to leave at lunch time,,  but looking at his result for the morning he would have been on the podium had he stayed on , his EVO 3 going very fast , It appeared that some people were a little under the weather and not sailing as well as they could and in fact we lost 4 boats shortly after lunch through fatigue I suppose you call it , in Fact Phil Harpham had said by race 12 that we had walked over 4 miles up and down the control are, After Lunch racing moved to the East Bank and became quite fluky , however as you all know cream comes to the surface and so it came to be , the clever guys and gals managing to tackle the conditions and take it in there stride, All in all a great days racing with Dave Burke taking 7 wins from 14 races means he moves up the leader board . results are posted below. can you work out which bank you sailed best on all I know is that I Mick C gbr46 sailed a little better on the East bank !!!!!!!!! The lake has its secrets.
