Marblehead Ranking Event #5

A day of similar winds to Saturday starting with light rain and 5 knots from the NNE and then gradually shifting to NW and building in the afternoon to 12 to 15 knots in great sunshine.  This was West Kirby nearly at its best – the only improvement would have been a breeze which was more Westerly so that the racing could have been more tactical and easier for the sailors to judge distances at the windward mark.

A very tight finish with two boats on 19 points after 9 races and Graham Elliott narrowly beating Peter Stollery on the basis of a larger number of first places.
