This Saturday was race 3 of the lockdown 6 boat bubble . Instead of the predicted 2nd suit breeze the fleet was to sail in a very light to mid range A suit breeze, sort of from the top end of the lake, with a change on almost every leg of the course all afternoon. Bill came out with the race 1 win with Brad 2nd. 4 races were sailed before our drinks break and Grahams 3 course meal. Along with his big boots it would cost him dear later in the day. Brad had 2 wins and 2 seconds to take a grip on the afternoon. Martin got his first win of the lockdown.
After the break, Brad held his form with 2 more wins and 2 seconds, the last coming from a great recovery. Graham had a 2 and 3 but but races 7 and 8 may be deleted from his note book. Bill came back strong with a 2, 4, 3 in the last 3 races to take 3rd place from Graham. Peter came good in the better breeze in race 7 with a 3rd. Martin converted his good starts in race 7 & 8 into race wins, Race 8 had a blanket finish. We had a beer or fanta and a debrief after a hard afternoons racing. Overall results after 8 races:
