A cold day at the dam today, with a light NW breeze initially, turrning to around 15 knots in the gusts later on, with a mixed bag in between.
Eleven sailors turned up today - a good healthy fleet and a good preparation for the State Championships next week.
Pro, Lisa Blackwood got us under way promptly with some good long courses, and it soon became evident that the one to beat today was Stuart Dawes, who had an absolute cracker of a day. So much so, that he dropped a pair of 4th places as his worst results on the day - I'd have been happy to trade them for my counted results....
Stu easily won the day with just 15 points from our 10 races. Top effort Stu and we know who the one to keep an eye on next week is.
Second today - on countback, was Ray Joyce on 27 points, narowly edging out Richard Fisher who took third spot.
We also had a countback to decide 4th and 5th position today, showing the closeness of the competition overall.
A great days sailing, with 8 of the 11 sailors gaining a podium place during the day.
On handicap today, Ray Joyce came out on top, with 4 net points. Rod Marshall came second with 2 net points, with Richard Fisher and Kyle Stewart tying for third on 1 net point.
Thanks to Lisa for taking on the Pro duties today.
Wednesday will have a return of the DF95's for Mid Week Handicap - button press at 11.
There is no scheduled sailing next Sunday at the dam, with many of us travelling to Launceston to compete in the Tasmanian DF95 Championships. Entries are still open, so if you'd like to compete, please get your entry in as soon as possible via our Ranking Events page.
For those who are unaware of the sailing location at Lake Trevallyn, I have included a picture below of the location. We cannot park right where we sail, but instead are expected to park in the car park about 60m away from the control area. If there are any questions or issues, please let me know and I'll try to sort them out for you.
