This night we had the most boats out this season, there were 3 solo’s, 2 lasers, 1 enterprise, 1 Firefly, 1 solution, 1 streaker and a mirror! With a slow wind from NE, the course was set for Z, G, F, C and A all to starboard. A 50-minute pursuit was set and the weather was great. Nice evening sailing. The order at the end of the 50 minutes was:
- Tony C
- Tony W (retired)
Wind east 2/3.
Great turnout of 9 boats. Really good start , all away within 5 seconds. First leg down to L. Where is that asked a number of sailors. L is for leisure centre (old) or L is for long way down the loch. Anyway they all managed and in close order at that. All going well , one Topper exceptionally so but the other not so much.
Two lasers at the front followed by the solution , welcome back Dennis. .
Lasers first and second across the line thought they had won but the exceptionally well sailed Topper beat them easily .Well done Sebastian but why did you change boats mid stream so to speak ( he sailed the Solution in race two) Alas it was no solution for Seb. who finished 7th in race two.
Wind shift necessitated course change to a more familiar G as first mark.
Another good start Malcolm and Graham, both lasers duelled around the course with Malcolm eventually winning the duel and the race.
And Becci ! As you said at least you were not lapped , although it was a close call.
And well done Kirsten Brown for trying in the race. Tony Cook
