The wind was extremely light last Thursday and it was no different for this second round. There were 13 starters and an X-shaped course 0-9-B-A. The starboard pin was alongside the Bates and Mike & Eric’s GP were luffed into the Bates. They completed a penalty turn and this dropped them back a little.
It was John’s Skiff which was first round the windward mark with Jim fairly close astern in his Supernova followed by Mike & Eric. Hazel in her Radial was trying different tactics to the rest of the fleet and it was paying off with her moving ahead of Richard in his Solo and the newly launched GP of Katherine & Glenys.
AJ & Sue retired the GP and Steve Peck and Simon Smith the L2000.
After B, it had become a run to A but John took the asymmetric course to keep the Skiff’s kite filled and lost ground to the pursuing boats which had taken a direct course. Further down the field Josh kept the Safety Crew active by capsizing his Tera but think he just fancied a swim and some capsize practice!
Then it was in to the restaurant where Neil had prepared a choice of menus and large helpings for all.
Results showed that Mike & Eric had won on FH from Jim. Richard followed in third. Tony collected a 3 for his OD role and leads both series. PH produced a tie for the win between Hazel and Richard with Kath & Glenys taking third.
