Guys and Gals I know i keep saying it ,,,,,, but another great day at the lake perfect breeze 10 knots straight down the east bank nice and warm and a great fleet of 11 skippers ,,could have been more but Rob, Graham , Bob ,and Geoff B , Jen could not make it ,
They probably missed one of the best days at the lake , gotta say NO blinking weed at all and it has been good all year, Racing was tight at the front, tight in the middle , and tight at the back , everybody is sailing realy well just lately .
We welcomed Geoff S with his new charge an AB4 and whilst it will take time to adjust, he has gone well today and I am pleased to report has enjoyed every minute of it. Chris E started well as did Mick Cooper with Chris G looking sharp. Race two had Chris G Britpop from the Sedici of Mick C and then Chris E who is always a strong force in any conditions.
Race three and Mick C took was to be the first of four straight wins with a variety of runners up, It was all about the shifts and utter concentration, and then from race seven with Chris E gaining a couple of bullits and Chris G always in contention, Adrian seemed to fade in the last three races but had some firm placings during the morning. Mick Cooper showed some fine form and considering he only started sailing four years ago, can now be assured he is in the top flight at the club only just beating Roger B on countback ( up to 9th place) , All in all a fab days racing and that is what it is all about .
Many thanks to Roger B and Ed W for keeping is all organised with some excellent course setting and getting 9 long races in , and not forgetting all the helpers for putting the dingy away etc etc
