Night Jar 30 June

Another glorious evening tempted 17 boats out to race. Neil/Judith Currie led the fleet round the course, followed by Robbie D/Ethan Dawson in an RS200, but it was the GPs that made best use of the winds with Tim Knowles/Martin Statter winning on handicap, narrowly beating Dave Nicholson/Sarah Wilkinson by just 2 secs, with Robbie D 3rd 25 secs behind. Joan/Jack, having to count their 6th position have slipped into 2nd position in the series, 0.5pts behind Neil Currie with just two races left.

Alan Jones secured another 1st on personal handicap, with Nigel Lewis 2nd and Dave Nicholson 3rd, each about 25 secs apart. Counting just 6pts, and one more race to count, Alan lead in the series in unassailable – he can say bye bye to his handicap! However, 2nd/3rd positions are still up for grabs and being fought for by Joan/Jack, Nigel and Val/Ken.

47 entrants to date, will it top 50 by the end of the series?
