Shivery Saturday!

Saturday started off with clear blue skies, but by the afternoon the clouds had moved in and removed any benefit of the sunshine in the cold NE breeze which filled in just in time for racing.

There being just one asymmetric boat sailed by Neil/Archie, it raced in the MJ  series, and led the fleet in both races ahead of Dave/Lynn in their GP. Val/Ken launched their GP in time for the second race, and had some good racing with Dave/Lynn, finishing just a few seconds behind.

On handicap, Dave/Lynn won both races to lead the series, with Rory taking two 3rds, lying 2nd overall.
