Night Jar 14 July

The first Night Jar series of the season came to an end this week on another lovely summer like evening, with light winds.

Joan/Jack Hardie in a RS400 led the fleet around the course and won, just 9 secs ahead of Tim Knowles/Martin Statter who led a group of five GPs. Notably Robert Cruickshank had an excellent race, and finished 6th overall in a fleet of 22 boats. The total number of entrants in the series reached 50, and Joan’s win secured her the series. Neil/Judith Currie were 2nd and Val/Ken Bell 3rd.

In the personal handicap version of the results, Alan Jones had a good race securing another 1st, clearly winning the series with 7pts for the seven races to count. Alan – wave bye bye to your handicap! His closest rival was Joan Hardie with 24 pts, then Val/Ken Bell 3rd.
