Warmest day of the year they said , and so it was , one or two small showers to cool us down. Eleven skippers, turned out for round three, the breeze was light and stayed light, making the beats a little tricky, Darin B 98 took the first win, closely followed by Mick C 46 with the Venti, Darin’s Pikanto is in excellent condition, and I did say a few races ago how old the boat was, its quite old !! next race and another Pikanto of Kevin E 20 took the bullet, and I gota say “I did see Kevin having a good old butchers at Darin’s set up prior to racing “!!!!!! Well done Kev , Racing was close up and down the fleet and was surprisingly competitive, what else would you expect at Lincoln. Geoff F 16 was sailing Micks old widget and it was his first time on the water since his eye operation , he thoroughly, enjoyed his morning , and will be out next week with one of the DF’s Pete W 65 was having one or two radio problems including dropping the whole batt pack in the water ,, kindly recovered by Darin, later.
It really was a lovely morning, and everybody had fun , it was always going t be a battle with Rob and Darin and Darin just took the morning on countback , Jen and Dave were not sailing as well as usual, but I am sure we all went home happy.
Well done Darin on the win and also many thanks to all who helped get the gear out and put away at the end.
