” Another fantastic day at the club. A few drops of rain, but nothing to worry about. Lots of pleasantly warm sunshine. Wind pretty steady, at the top end of A rig, with a couple of races with overpowered boats.
All the top dogs were either away at opens, or unwell, or on their hols, so a small field of 6 skippers, who normally would be well down the fleet made hay.
Kevin “Mr Consistent” Evison got 3 wins, 4 seconds and a single 3rd after discards, and won the day.
Geoff Streeter got 4 wins, but no seconds, getting 4 3rds after discards, and came second.
Peter Hellen came 3rd, getting his first race win ever (Yay!), and pipping Colin Toll into 4th, who though he got 2 wins, had a more inconsistent set of results.
Ed Whittaker and Tony Jackson were 5th and 6th.
So the moral of the story is – turn up and sail, because no-one this morning scored more than 6 in the Cumulative, making up at least 9 points on all the non-sailors, with the result that Kevin is now 3rd and Colin 7th in the cumulative!”
