Very still conditions to start with today, resulting in a 30 minute delay before we had some semblance of wind to try to sail in.
Ten skippers turned up today, with 9 eligible for results. Some great, close racing, with some exceptional sailing at the front between Richard and Rod - certainly showing their class and why they are state and national champions respectively.
Fantastic to see John Hall have such a great day ont the water today, as well as Martin Svensen coming home in a rush on the last race to take a seocnd position. Great sailing, Martin.
At the conclusion of the seven races, Richard Fisher came out a clear winner, with just 7 points.
Second today, unsurprisingly, was Rod Jackman, on 17 points.
Rounding out the top three was John Hall, on 22 points.
On handicap today, John Hall cleaned up as winner, on 4 net points. Richard Fisher took second on 3 net points, with Rod Jackman, Kyle Stewart and Martin Svensen tied in third on 1 net point.
Just a gentle reminder for all sailors, that all class sailing (scratch and ranking) need to be sailed with yachts that comply fully with the respective rules. We do not want to detract people from sailing, so a yacht could be sailed on a particular day, but for inclusion in results, it needs to be one that complies to the rules.
Wednesday this week is IOM Handicap at the dam, starting at 11am
Next weekend is the State DF65 Championship at Exeter. Please get entries in if you are intending on sailing. We have people staying at both the nearby caravan park and at Aspect Tamar Valley should you be interested.
Next Subday's sailing was to be IOM Scratch, but given we will also be representing up north, it was decided to alter the sailing for the next two weeks. Next Sunday 31st July will be a general sail day for all classes, with the IOM scratch moved to the following Sunday, 7th August.
