A reasonably good turnout today at the dam, with 9 sailors attending – helped along with Richard and Cliff coming from down south.
From a phone call I had earlier, it sounded like conditions were challenging, with A rig conditions all day, with some bullets shooting through that really tested out the sailors when the extreme A conditions came along.
Some really close results at the end of the day, and I am sure the sailing itself would have been very close as well, such as it is with restricted design racing.
Overall winner (Pink Division) was Stu Dawes, bringing a very consistent performance across the day with 1’s and 2’s only being counted against his score of 13 points (from 11 races). Coming in second, on count back, was Chris Wood on 21 points, with Mike Hickman in third on the same points.
A pretty clear separation today to white division, with the southern invader, Cliff Eaves taking white fleet honours on 42 points, with Richard Barwick (47 points) taking home second on countback from Peter Sylvester. Keeping Richard and Peter honest was Phil Turnbull, just two points adrift.
