Another great sailing evening with a constant westerly breeze and yet more warm conditions. Katia / Andy returned with a repaired and now grey painted Mirror following the contretemps a fortnight ago. 18 boats crossed the line for a 0-1-B-A course with the GP of Mike & Eric right on the bubble. They built up a large lead and led throughout on the water with only Joe’s Laser for company.
Then came a group containing Val / Ken & AJ / Sue in the GP’s, Tony & Rory in Solos and Neil in his Laser. When to shorten was a real dilemma as this group were finishing their third lap as Mathew’s Tera was coming up to the line on two. They got through by the belated raising of S but it meant that Jon’s Laser and Nigel / Glenys’s GP which were next were finished on three.
It was all so rapid that the latter crew were unsure if they had finished and did a further lap! Not sure if they were in time for the meal prepared on this occasion by John Reekie?
