The Bad (Green slime)
Its probably unfair to post photos here – so we’ll just give you the results at the end of day one instead!
The day started with a steady north westerly wind blowing down the lake, with occasional lulls and stronger periods. This then decreased in strength during the afternoon before a tea break was held (it was then observed that the anemometer direction vane was going around faster than the rotating cups!). The day finished in sunshine with the wind increasing and fortunately none of the forecast showers reached us all day.
Nine races were held, with David Potter being the model of consistency with 3rd being his lowest place, Mark Dicks snapping at his heels, but Graham Elliott holding the overnight lead with five 1st places.
The Rg65 Nationals Seedings and Pre-event Information page has been updated and now includes a message from the Race Officer and details of the initial seeding fleets.
Good luck to all competitors.
A reminder that we have RG65 racing this coming Saturday starting at 1pm. This will be the last chance to have a serious tune-up session before the Nationals.
Visitors are welcome to join in the club racing as a practice session.
A reminder to anyone intending to enter the RG65 Nationals that the closing date for entries is 10th June. After that date, all entries will only be accepted at the discretion of the MYA/Birkenhead RS&PC and in any case will be subject to a late entry fee (an extra £10)
Notice of Race
We need a couple more volunteers to help out with the RG65 Nationals on 24th and 25th June. If you are available on either or both of these dates to help with the running of the event, please could you contact the sailing secretary Graham Elliott
