Gota say one of the best summers mornings at Scotlnd farm, 11 skippers showed up for round five of the summer series. After a long lay off it looked like business as usual for Dave Burke GBR 30 with a bullitt in the first race, Jen hand with another BP following up with a fine second, There was a little green stuff floating around after quite a big cut with new machinery on Friday and that was to have an effect on most skippers during racing , one would hope that after ten races it evened itself out. The breeze was at times 90% of top suit from the Souht West comng straight down the lake and sailing was all on the East bank giving a great beat and run. The sun shone and the wind blew, Banter on lakeside was great, and not a bad word said about the green stuff which was far better than has been Mick C GBR 46 was doing well in the conditions and mast have had a very good trim on or ewas extremly lucky , you decide . Apart from the first race he was not out of the top three till coffee break. After coffee we had five more races making ten in all for the morning, and as I said one of the best mornings racing for a long time, for those who missed it, nothing to say, their loss , this is what racing is all about, and a third of the membership enjoyed every minute. Ivan was sailing his nearly new 3 Dogs and will only get better, Peter Cogill had some good races with the V9 and Mick Cooper had a frustrating morning having improved so much in the past few months and will feel he should have done a little better. Again I say a great mornings racing Congrats to Mick C in guiding the Red Dragon ( V9) to victory in quite a hot fleet.
Many thanks to Mick Cooper and Dave Burke our race officials who did a sterling job.
