Another good day at Scotland farm, Record turnout with 14 skippers coming to the line and 6 different designs , Wind was 70 % of top suit to start and faded for the last three races, all very exciting racing along the East bank. We had a new Titan out from Mick Cooper for the first time, one or two minor issues as you always get with a new boat but trust me it will be quick. Mick Chamberlain got of to a good start with his Sedici just pipping Bob Geary with another Sedici, Normal service was resumed in race two with Robs Brit Pop just pipping Adrians Sedici , Race team Jen Hand kept things going and race three was Robs followed by Mick Ch. After race 4 a coffee break was called, the wind had dropped a little and in race 5 Keith Holmes got his name on the board with his Brit Pop, Chris Graves was struggling, maybe trying to hard , but had his just desserts in race 6 with a win. Ivan 93 had to leave early, and Geoff Streeter is still getting to grips with the AB4, Graham K was sailing very well, but as the breeze went soft it became more difficult to keep the boat moving, Adrian got a great win in race 7 and was so far in front it looked like he only did one lap ( Just Joking), Final win of the day was Mick Ch putting the Sedici on top of the pile for the day . The final series standings will be published in the next few days, and presentation of the trophy will be done at the clubs AGM early in November.
The series has been excellent this year and to round it of with 14 skippers and also a couple of prospective members looking on, the club is healthy and looking forward to a great winter series. I am expecting to add a few phots to this post as a photographer friend was in attendance
well done to all the helpers and OOD,s and the skippers for making this a great days racing
