and Then There Were Three..

Sunday’s forecast threatened to be wet and windy, fortunately there was not too much of the former, and it was not quite as blustery as Saturday either!

In the morning, a fleet of six in the handicap fleet was led by Steve, with guest appearance of Elaine (she obviously managed to unlock those bar chains!), who stayed upright, though most of his competition went swimming at some stage in the race. Banter finished second ahead of Alan/Sue in a GP.

Mike/Kayla found their pace again and led throughout the F15 race while Tim/Ian battled it out with Ian/Lezli-Ann for 2nd place.

For the afternoon pennant race, with Alan/Sue swapping into a F15, it was to be a F15 only race, all of which seemed keen (well apart from the female crews) to sail around the lake. Although Ian/Lezli-Ann were rigged for the race, they quickly opted out so they could save themselves for next weeks F15 open, so that left three F15s to race down to 10 and back. Although there were some light and flukey patches from time to time, Mike described a thrilling spinnaker leg back from 10 to the narrows on which they were travelling so fast the spray missed Kayla! Mike continued with his winning ways and Tim/Ian came 2nd.
