Winter Series Begins

Following the rain and gales on Saturday, the weather on Sunday was mild with a gentle southwesterly breeze. However, only 7 hardy competitors arrived to contest the first race of the November Winter Series.

Racing was complicated somewhat by the absence of the committee boat driver, so the competitors themselves started racing on the water by using a gate start or as one competitor said, a rabbit start. Fittingly the rabbit for the first race was called Peter!

Both races were easily won by AJ/Sue in their GP14 followed in each case by the Rabbit – Peter Whipp in his Laser.

Series results.
