Another very pleasant sailing day, sunny with a fresh WNW 15 – 20 mph breeze straight down the lake, made ‘ A’ rigs the order of the day. Ten sailors attended, with guest sailor Dorian Crease, from Two Islands Club in Milton Keynes, showing us all how to do it – by coming 1st. overall today ! It was very close racing all day.
The top three placed sailors were all on equal points before discards, and only separated by one point finally. The other podium places were decided on count-back, giving Richard Robinson 2nd place with 3 x 1st’s, and Alan Watkinson 3rd place with 2 x 1st’s. The chasing pack saw Andrew Peter in 4th, with 4 x 2nd’s and Mike de St Paer in 5th with 1 x win.
Thanks to RO Dave Williams who managed to keep us all in line, apart from one General Recall..
