There was no decision to be made on rigs this week, with a cool, good mid to top end of A+ blowing down the lake from the clubhouse. After Peter moved a few marks around to give a reasonable start line and leeward gate position, racing got underway soon after 11, but without Peter who was helping to try and get Martin on the water as he had an intermittent winch issue. Unfortunately there appeared to be no immediate solution, so Martin Whittingham-Jones very kindly agreed to be RO for the morning.
John Carlin ran the first race and so he was given average points for that race (based upon his 7 other counting races). This left the top 4 very close, with Alan taking the day on 16 pts and 3 wins, John C second on 19.4 pts and 3 wins, Peter 3rd on 20 pts (2 wins) and Clive 4th on 21 pts (2 wins).
- Alan Watkinson 373 16 Pts
- John Carlin 11 19.4 Pts (3 wins)
- Peter Baldwin 63 20 Pts (2 wins)
- Clive Warren 53 21 Pts (2 wins)
- Andrew Potter 194 29 Pts
- James Douglas 73 40 Pts
- Frans King 95 54 Pts
- Charles Legg 21 55 Pts
- John Beech 80 60 Pts
Out of interest, if Peter had been given average points for missing race 1, that would have given him 18.3 pts and second place.
Afterwards five DF95’s had an hour or so of one lap racing and tune up ideas, with some close finishes once again.
