Night Jar 6

The 6th race in the Night jar Series was held in a Southerly breeze with some lulls and shifts.

Before the race Robin Dawson held some starting practice for 10 of our Topper sailors and this led to some excellent starts and good results for the younger competitors.

The race started for the 21 crews at mark 0 with a beat to mark 8, John Reekie in his Skiff took an early lead but a capsize on the 2nd lap scuppered his chances. Phil Davenport took over the lead on the water in his RS100 and held it to the finish. The GP14s kept in touch and Mike Fairlamb/Eric Smith took fleet handicap honours followed by Phil, Alan/Sue and Val/Ken.

The personal handicap race was won by Harry Binns in his Topper, Alan/Sue were 2nd to retain overall lead in the series and the Topper of Hazel Newport was 3rd.

Special mention should go to Lottie Winfindale sailing her first race who completed the course. The Commodore was on hand to announce the results whilst the sailors tucked into a delicious Thai Curry.
