Day 2 dawned with sun, but sadly no wind. A postponement was called by the RO and we waited for the breeze to fill in. By 11:00 there was gentle SSW breeze sufficient to allow racing to start by 11:10. After a few had decided not to attend or leave early only 16 boats took to the water in a light and patchy 2 to 5 knots. We completed an additional 4 races before breaking for lunch, with a breeze that was at times nearly straight down the lake, perhaps helped by a bit of sea breeze adding to the gradient. John and Peter continued their tussle for the overall lead, with John getting the upper hand in this first session, winning two races to Peters one, with one race tie as the finish judge was unable to split the pair as they crossed the finish line.
After lunch, a further 4 races were completed, although the breeze could shut off at any point and one race was abandoned and break taken before racing continued. John continued to dominate this final session, with 3 wins, and Tony Sedgwick getting a win in the final race, having had some other excellent results over the weekend, but previously missing out on a win.
This gave a podium of John Tushingham in first, Peter Baldwin in second, with Dave Burke in third. We had a great weekend of A+ sailing, and thanks go to the Race Officer John Brierley assisted by Dave Williams (Sat), Neil Westbrook, Malcolm Harvey and Judith all helping to run the racing, plus Jocelyn and Chris in the galley keeping everyone fed and watered throughout both days from early in the morning to the end of racing.
Final Results are:
