A good breezy day for us today at MBYC. Eleven sailors fronted for the day, but unfortunately, as the wind increased, we did suffer some losses as the day went on, with just five sailing the last race. Battery issues, winch issues, side stays snapping - we had it all, but better off today than next week at the State Championship.
The wind did make things rather difficult for all, with a West to north Westerly at 15 to 30 knots through much of the afternoon.
Honours were much more evenly shared today. Rod Jackman with three wins, Lisa with a couple, Mat with two and Chris with three. The big difference today being the higher scores, and not so much the lower ones..
Chris Wood was the one who excelled the most today though. Along with the three wins, he had to throw out two 4th places for his drops, so was a well deserved winner today with 17 points.
One point behind on 18 was Mat Gray - again a very consistent day with drops of 4 and 5.
Lisa Blackwood rounded out the top three, two further adrift on 20.
We had some big movers on handicap this week, with Chris Wood taking the double today with a massive 5 differential points to take first place on handicap.
Rod Marchall took second place with 4 differential points, with Rod Jackma, John Hall and Martin Svensen all tied in third place with one differential point each.
As always, big thanks to Les for his help as Pro today.
