Very light conditions today at MBYC, but we all still got started on time. A small amount of weed affected a few skippers, but by large, it stayed away for us.
Nine skippers made it along today, and raced very well under the difficult, light air conditions.
Lisa got out a little early and adjusted the marks for us, and the freshen up acquitted us well for six of the seven races. Not much can be done when an easterly change comes through. Les Hanson expertly Pro'd the day and set out the courses with his usual ease and efficiency. Seven races were completed before we retired to the bar at 4pm.
Lisa Blackwood proved most consistent in the light, fluky conditions and won on just 8 points. She was seriously challenged, with Rod Jackman coming in second, just one point behind. Yours truly took out third, on 22 points, with Andrew Wardrop sailng his new, home built, and locally designed Bantam, in fourth, on 26 points.
Although a bit light with the wind, everyone enjoyed the day throughout. Thanks does need to go to Lisa for re-setting the buoys, and Les for his efforts as Pro and loaning his yacht to Stuart for the day.
Wednesday 3rd March is the return of the DF95 Mid Week Handicap. At Montrose Bay from 10am. An hour of scratch, followed by the usual eight handicap races.
Sunday 8th March is Long Distance Handicap Day. It is a long weekend (and as such, no scratch racing), but we will be there at Montrose for anyone wishing to have a good sail day. A reminder that this starts at 11am as usual for Long Distance Day's. A good chance for an informal lunch time chat and discussion about the pathway for the club into the future. Your committee is always keen to hear any opinions or thoughts from members.
LOST AND FOUND - There has been a wide brimmed hat and jacket left at MBYC for a little while now. We are keen to return them to their owners. If you are missing these items, please get in touch with us so we can get them returned to you.
