What a blaster! The sensible skippers came with “C” suits (that is, the
ones who actually could find them in the attic somewhere) because it really
was a “C” suit day. White caps, but not quite spume, made for some
challenging sailing for the “B” suiters. Good long courses lasted no time
at all – I think draining the boats took longer.
Needless to say, there were a number of DNF’s, which makes it a usual time
for the Race Officers to say loudly: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU MAKE SURE THE
OBSERVERS MARK YOU DOWN AS “DNF” iif in fact YOU DID NOT FINISH.
6 of the 10 races were missing one or more sail numbers on the Observer
Sheet – easily solved by quick responses to an email I sent out. It does
make it difficult for the RO’s to complete the results if there are missing
Well done to John Male for showing us all how to sail a “C” suit, although
Jim did well to come 3rd in a “B” suit!
