Todays sailing was at first relocated to Montrose as Tas Water had closed the dam, but when we arrived at Montrose we found out that the dam had in fact reopened - even though the web site said it to be closed. General consensus was that skippers would rather sail at the dam and so that was where we moved for today's sailing. My apologies to anyone if this has caused you inconvenience today.
There was a brisk Northerly of about 10 knots blowing down the dam and while it did lighten after lunch it didn’t stop us getting the full quota of 10 races completed. Unfortunately the weekend rains did mean that there was more weed and flotsam on the dam than usual. Most skippers found some at some stage today.
Martin Svensen sailed well today scoring a couple of race wins. One of these was especially noteworthy as he had to recover positions on the last beat from the gate to the finish to gain the win.
All skippers got to the podium at least once today.
Third place today went to Andrew Wardrop who has worked his starting handicap up from 30 a couple of weeks ago to 60 for next week. John Hall took second place with a more obedient boat today! And Lisa was today’s winner with all podium finishes (after discards) and a total of 2 points. Well done to all.
Next Wednesday’s handicap at the dam will again be for IOM’s (button at 11:00) And Sunday’s scratch sailing will be for DF95’s also at the dam (button at 10:00)
