It was dry but chilly with a NW wind. The OD set a different course of 1-0-B-4 and 20 boats took the start. Mark’s RS100 was first down the beat and continued to extend its lead. Val & Ken’s GP, incognito with a white Kite, were next up followed by James & Jenny’s L2000 having re-rigged from Ullswater and the second GP of Joan & Jack.
Then came a tight contest between the single handers; Rory’s Solo, Paul’s Radial (sailing above the helm’s handicap as usual) and Mike’s Streaker which moved through to be first of the group.
The course was shortened for Barbara’s Radial and the Teras of Matthew and Katia. Also, the Vision of Dave Era / Dave Pearson which had earlier capsized.
Then all headed back for the meal prepared this week by newcomer John Bracegirdle.
