It was the last race of the Friday Summer series – with David and Oliver neck and neck. Who would take the honours?
The wind was not too bad – a bit variable and coming in from north west by west, and so we could set a good long course. For the first few races we had : start blues, 7, 3, inner blue, 7, 3 inner blue and a short finish line between the out-of-place 8 and A. With a slight shift to a more westerly, we change the 7 to inner white, outer white. There was some good racing, with many changes of position, but David was the winner for the day, and I will leave it to the race officer (or perhaps JM – thanks – as PP is away on more important business!) to reveal the series winner.
Sunday is the last J class summer series race.
New (2019) season starts Friday Oct 5th and Sunday 7th (Marbleheads).
