What a fantastic day for racing, apart from Cake at the lake for Gordon and Mick, this was a great day of racing, breeze started in the North West and gradually backed to the South West , A rigs used through out this incredibly sunny morning. Mick C and Tony J sorted what needed to be sorted ably helped by Pete W who set out the course on the South bank, a good long beat and run Tim H 44 got off to a great start taking the first two bullets, and clearly meant business with his V 11, Race three and Mickey boy 46 got the win but he was so inconsistent and getting into all sorts of trouble, poking his nose in where other fear to tread and paying the penalty. Scraps were going on all thru the fleet , and it was great to see Gordon B 130 out racing again after quite a long lay off.
Thirteen skippers enjoyed the morning and there were a number of absentee’s, which was surprising as the forecast was spot on. Everybody will look back on this set of races and know what they did right or wrong.some skippers seemed a little of colour, too much lemon drizzle at coffee break.
Congratulations to Tim H 44 for well deserved win , both Him and Mick C 46 shared the wins, and everybody went home happy I am sure ,
Thanks to everybody for helping get the kit away.
