Sailors arrived to a chilly South Easterly blowing almost straight down the lake from the clubhouse end. Dave, Alan and John elected to do some RG65 tuning still leaving a very respectable turnout of nine DF65s to race.
Mike De St Paer set a standard / windward leeward course with a higher top mark and spreader for the RGs who started together with the DFs.
The starts were interesting – not always for the right reasons – with some hefty gusts catching skippers out and resulting in quite a bit of contact, and some minor gear failures also affected a few boats resulting in the odd missed start.
After ten races, with four wins and some consistent sailing, John Carlin ran out the winner ahead of James Douglas who tied on points with Neil Westbrook, but was ahead on countback.
Racing was very close right across the fleet, with John Beech wining race 9, and Frans King and Clive Warren both getting a 2nd during the day.
The final positions were as follows.
- John Carlin 16 pts (4wins)
- James Douglas 20 pts (3 wins)
- Neil West Brook 20 pts (1 win)
- Malcolm Harvey 37 pts
- Paul Little 38 pts (1 win)
- Richard Walker 38 pts
- John Beech 40 pts
- Clive Warren 49 pts
- Frans King 58 pts
