Wet and windy was the forecast , wet and windy is what we got, having said that what a fantastic mornings racing it was, was it A or was it B suit , some scrambling to change before the first race when 13 skippers came to the line, A suit won the day, and it was a great beat and run course on the favorite East bank.
Keith 39 took the first two races with Peter 110 and Pete 678 getting the second spots, Billy Mac 452 on a rare visit from down the A1 getting third in the first race. Roger Bowtle 448 sporting a B rig got a bullitt in the third race with some exception sailing in the blustery and shifty conditions, and Mick C 46 took the fourth, afetr which a coffee break was called for. Keith then had a run of five races that nailed his position as number 1, only losing out once when pushed into second by Mick C .
Around race 11 the heavens opended big style and skipper took shelter for 15 minutes in cars under trees and in the clubhouse to let it all blow over, which it did, and the sun came out and the breeze went somewhere else to play, and left us with about 7 knots from the south west, many skippers decided enough was enough and retired gracefully.
Jen Hand managed to take second spot by one point , not having won a race all morning now that is consistancy for you, Mike W 839 had servo problems ealy on, but by a clear margin Keith won the morning at a trot, and is the man to beat at Lincoln, so congratulations to him and many thanks to all the helpers for tidying up and putting all the gear away. If you think you can beat Keith come and have a go , visitors are very welcome at lincoln.
