It was a cool morning at the dam but there was a nice southerly of 5 – 12 knots which stayed for the day. Some calm patches and sizeable wind shifts offered interest to the racing. It was good to see a strong fleet of 17 boats today – especially as some of our regulars were away. Kim Potter was PRO again today and did a great job. Many of the races kept Kim on his toes covering blanket finishes. Thanks for your work Kim.
Today we welcomed new skipper Andrew Floyd who has bought Ted Stevens V9. Andrew was quick to show potential with two podium finishes. Not bad when you say that you are ‘just learning the controls.'
I managed to take out third spot overall today with a couple of race wins in the tally.
John Cole-Cook sailed his older boat today and started the day with two wins straight off the bat. John sailed consistently throughout the day to take second overall.
Today’s winner was Peter Webberly sailing his purple TS2. Pete was always in the placings early in the day. Congratulations Pete.
