It was a cool morning at the dam with a nice North-Wester of about 8 knots for the pre-event scratch races. Unfortunately this breeze gradually died throughout the day and our last race finished with a shortened course and in not much more than drifting conditions.
Still we sailed nine good races and as usual they were closely contested and the podium was well shared throughout the day.
Andrew Wardrop took out third place overall. Andrew often staged good recovery in his races after completing penalties. Rob Cooney took second with two race wins in the afternoon session. And the hands down overall winner was Commodore Rod Marshall with three race wins and plenty of other podiums today. Congratulations Andrew, Rob and Rod.
