First thanks to Darin as designated RO but also as a close second to a number of skippers, too many to name individually, who helped to turn a good day into a great day. Well done one and all.
The day started with a short “teach in” which indicated that there is no need to specify a topic, all that is necessary is to ask “has anyone any questions about last weeks teach in”, the rest follows naturally. Thanks to Darin, Dave and Chris.
The usual, unco-operative Scotland Farm wind was anywhere from west to south west but due to some inspired mark setting by Darin and Dave, several courses were used during the morning without a single mark being moved.
The racing was spoiled to a degree by weed but seemed evenly spread through the fleet so hopefully the overall result was not unduly affected. From 11 races 4 different skippers had a first place but the overall winner was Chris due to consistent placings.
Ed and Alan had their “new” old boats on the water for the first time with mixed results but hopefully experience gained, also a welcome to Chris Graves, a potential new member.
