Final Weekend Series

The final championship weekend series of the season had a delayed start due to a lack of OD. The wind had filled in since the morning, and kept blowing a better than forecast F2-3 which freshened slightly as the afternoon went on.

There were just 9 boats over two fleets, led by Chris/Jack in RS200, but it was Mike/Jack in a Graduate that won both races. The GPs were led and won by AJ/Sue following an impressive flying start, with Nigel/Glynis 2nd.

Soon after the start of the 2nd race Neil/Archie in their RS200 lost their jib halyard bringing their race to an early conclusion.

No capsizes, or hairy planing conditions, but a pleasant afternoon’s racing.

Sunday morning’s wind was lighter than originally forecast and there were three contenders eager to sail, so that’s what they did! The conditions were mixed, with some lulls, and some good reaches, but the big gusts never appeared.

There was some close racing between the RS200s of Chris/Evie and Neil/Archie in both races with Chris generally mastering the beats while Neil gained off wind. However in the last race Neil broke away with a prolonged plane to prevent Chris having a clean sweep in the series.

AJ/Sue’s single win on Saturday was sufficient to win them the GP Stables Prize.

The handicap Comet Trophy was won by Chris/Jack&Evie, with Neil/Archie 2nd, and Mike/Jack 3rd
