16 skippers out for round 8 , A very light affaire from the get go , with just a couple of knots from the South South West enabling Pete W to lay a pretty good course on the East bank. Off to a cracking start was Keith H 88 who took the win with Dave Rigby 57 a distant second and Chris E 74 in third spot, the second race saw Graham K 157 get an exceptional start that he kept out front for the whole race, Chris E 74 took second with Gravesy 11 in third spot, just about the best he could muster in this very competitive fleet. Still a few skippers missing on this very light breeze day, Races 4 the breeze increased maybe a couple of knots and saw Pete W 65 take his first win with Jen H 69 second and Chris E 74 taking third spot to keep his scores fairly low. Kevin Hope our visitor for the day needed a few bits sorting before he joined the racing in race 4 but for only the second time radio racing he did well with the Erica , that clearly need a bit of sorting that I am sure the club members can help with, but his results were promising.
Pete W 65 then went through a grey period with the 4th places before nailing in in the final race. Mick C 46 can be quite please with his new Venti . but let me tell you it was all about the start , if you failed at the start you just failed to get through, The fleet at Lincoln is getting very competitive, but at the same time is pretty calm in the bank side and the racing was very good despite the lack of breeze.
Very well done to Pete W 65 for his win , and also the top three on the podium . Thanks to all helpers and the OOD’s to enable us to have some great racing.
