Mill-pond calm conditions greeted sailors this morning, but a northerly draught of about 5 knots obliged right on starting time allowing us to get sailing underway.
Unfortunately this wind had died to all but a zephyr by the fifth race and during the lunch break it left us altogether. The majority opinion was to ‘call it a day’ with only five races sailed.
Richard Fisher took out the mini-series with two wins. Rod Jackman claimed second place with some remarkable sailing from the back marker position. Phil Jackman (three 2nd places) completed the podium.
Thanks to Andrew Wardrop and John Murrell who took on PRO duties for the day.
Next Sunday the Marblehead Southern Championships will be held at Montrose and next Wednesday’s sailing will be an IOM handicap trophy round.
