The forecast was warm and sunny with 17kts gusting 22Kts from the south, it was all of that but from anywhere between ESE to WSW, it was constantly changing and very difficult to deal with.
We sailed off the east bank with a dog leg splitting the beat into two. Six skippers turned up but only four made it to the start of the first race. Alan B. 0 had rig problems whilst Mike W. 76 had to replace a failing rudder servo. Alan N and Jen got the rig problems sorted for Alan in time for the second race.
Dave R 180 set the pace from the off by taking the first two bullets and then five of the remaining six. A very strong performance, persevering with his A suit. Jen was never far away, also started with an A suit, changed down to her B and then back up to her A. She has become very adapt at rig changing…..
There was some close racing throughout the fleet for the whole morning with positions being swapped regularly mainly due to the severe wind shifts. Thanks to MaryAnn for the starts and scoring.
Congratulations to Dave R 180 1st, Jen H 69 2nd and Mike W 76 3rd. Although the racing was very competitive all was conducted in a polite and courteous manner, resulting in a very enjoyable morning
Write up by Mike W , many thanks for that .
