The Ugly

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.
