Weekend Racing

T-shirts, shorts and wind! What more could you ask for at the end of September? With just one series left in the club championships, this penultimate series was to prove interesting.

Tempers were somewhat frayed at the front end of the GP and F15 fleets, but overall the testing winds resulted in some excellent competition.

The Hodgkins boys triumphed when they won one of Saturday’s races. Mike Moore gave away a good lead to Scott Beattie by heading for the wrong mark and failing to keep an eye on the competition. Wendy Somerville was somewhat dismayed when an expected shorten course didn’t materialise, and in the following lap in difficult conditions, although some shifts could easily have won her the race, she lost a couple of places.
