Nice, Great turnout for round three of this series, which had it all, a great mixture of both experienced and less experienced skippers descended on the farm for a round three shootout, it had been publicised, well before hand that help would be available to the less experience and so it was, the top guys certainly stood up and helped with settings and rig tune, and I am sure this was well received.
Moving on Chris and Stuart sorted out all the stuff that needs sorting with a course on the South bank and unusually a gate at the weather marks certainly helped the carnage that may well have happened , Breeze was light top suit conditions, and the direction was near perfect for the two beats and runs and a final beat to the finish. first race had the V10 of Tim H 44 taking the bullet, and Mick C 46 a close second , third was Darin B 98 , race two and Tim H 44 was on fire taking it from Chris E 74 , and Darin B 98 getting another third. Very competitive racing was going on where ever you were, up and down the fleet, and this made it preety exciting for all, little re tunes were going on between races, in one little group only 1 point separated three boats 14th 15th and 16th only separated by 1 point and one of the skippers it was his first time out with his boat. Back at the top it was fast and furious
with Darin B 98 taking race three and four Chris E 74 came back from the brink with three 2nd places at the end, as you can see it was tight at the top with only three points in it, in the top three, and only 4 points adrift was 4th place, with both Darin and Tim getting three wins apiece out of the 8 races this was great racing, have a look at the results everybody and try and re-live where you perhaps could have done better, and come back for round four and try to do just a tad better. You will always get help from the top guys and girls so don’t be afraid to get to the lake early and ask .
Justwant to say many thanks to all skipper for the manner this round was sailed in and the best behaviour on the bank by all.
Darin B 98 we are getting closer, but many congratulations for your win, in fact well done the podium.
Hopefully we will see you all next time.
