Wow what a start to the new year, 13 skippers arrived in a fabulous steady south westerly 5 to 8 knots 9C a bit cloudy a breeze that steadily increased as the moring wore on to 9 to 11knots straight down the lake, We welcomed a new member David Rigby with his Vision and hope he enjoys sailing with us. Race one won by Mick with the Sedici with Keith 2nd and Chris 3rd Race two was won by another Sedici number 77 of Adrian and Peter Cogill with the V9 came home in 2nd,, New member David was sailing well and finding his feet on this new patch of water and got better as the morning progressed.
The start was important as always and you can see the fleet getting much better lining up to get there place on the front line, with not to much bias on the start line you had to be on your toes to get it spot on. Mick Cooper seemed to struggle in the early races until Chris cast his eye over the rig and then he started to go well. Roger Bowtle was sailing his Lintel ( not the B/P ) and did well in the lighter stuff. the racing was very competetive all thru the fleet with some grand tussles. Top dog on the day was Mick just doing enough to keep Chris and Keith at bay. A fantastic mornings racing,
Just remember next time, wellies are handy when the jettys are just under water .
Well done to Adrian , Roger and Jen and all the helpers to get things sorted and give us some great racing.
