Friday sailing Results 19th April 2019

A glorious day: hot sun, good medium strength north easterly, lovely location, wonderful group of skippers. Yes, you’ve guessed it. A good session of sailing with 14 competitors.

A good long course – 1 / 2, 6, 3 , 1, 6 , 3, 1 , a/b finish, and after lunch it became 6,5,2,1. Some close racing again (especially at the windward mark…… you cant afford to ‘pinch’ to get round the buoy, and it is much better to try and stay clear of other boats – let them get into trouble.) Once again consistency was important – and not making simple mistakes! John (1/5) H and Oliver ended up with 9 points, but 4 wins and a 2,3 beats 3 wins and 2,2,2. Richard (2) and Odd also had wins.

Please let Peter know if you intend to race in the M & S series on 28th, or if you can be at the lake to help out with running the event, thanks.

Tom has let us know that he has been asked to sell Mike’s yachts – 2 IOM’s and a J class. He will have the details available soon but please make contact with him if you are interested.
