The latest round of the Night Jar series was held in warm and sunny conditions with a light NE Wind. The superb evening brought out sixteen boats including several from the Club’s own training fleet.
Tim Chittenden running the Bates and Matt Page as OD shortened the course at the forty five minute mark and the GP of Mike Fairlamb crewed by a returning Eric Smith crossed first ahead of Dave & Lynn Lawson. The Fifteens, 400s and Joan & Jack Hardie’s 200 all completed an additional fourth lap.
Tanya Briggs laid on this week’s meal while Elaine Hunt provided a full bar service! Provisional results were delayed while an attempt was made to establish who was helming each boat. When they were issued they showed Mike & Eric were an excellent first overall and Dave & Lynn second in both Fleet and PH categories.
In FH Neil & Judith were third, Graham & Kayla fourth and Joan & Jack fifth. On PH it was Alan & Sue in third. Visitor Ben Whitaker was a superb fourth in a Topper although whether his result will stand in the series must be open to question.
