It was a nice warm day with a very suitable 10 knot Northerly blowing down the dam when we arrived this morning. The prospect of good weather (and of course great company) brought out a strong fleet of 17 skippers today although Peter Turner’s boat didn’t make it to water due to electronics trouble.
The wind lightened and backed to the South West as the day proceeded which did mean that the last couple of races turned out to be reaching events.
Kim Potter generously loaned his boat to Rod Jackman today and took on PRO duties himself. Thanks for your great work today Kim.
We did not seem to have as many problems with weed snare today which was a welcome change as it has caused plenty of trouble over recent weeks.
Often the day will favour a particular group of our skippers: either the long handicappers, the back markers, or the mid-fleet skippers – but not so today. Winners were from across the handicap spectrum and the results table totally shuffled.
Third place today went to Peter Germain. A couple of race wins for the woodie!
Second went to Ray Joyce who is regularly in the mix in series results.
Today’s winner was Jammy Jones who had a great day’s racing and had nothing worse than 4th in his total once discards were removed. It was particularly impressive as Jammy had a morning dental appointment and only turned up seconds before the button for the first race. It just shows how important clean teeth are to winning races! Congratulations Jammy!
