Thursday Evening

Anyone passing the lake during Thursday afternoon might have been forgiven for assuming racing in the fourth round of the Night Jar would be a test of resolve and endurance. The wind was cold and blustery; the water grey and choppy. However, the reality was that the race was more a test of patience than anything else, as the wind had all but evaporated. Eleven boats took to the water, under the watchful eye of Captain Macpherson. Neil/Judith Currie led the fleet home, but were second to Joan/Jack Hardie on both fleet and personal handicap. Third, on PH were Alan and Sue – while John Crosbie was third on FH.
