A truly difficult day at the dam today. From wondering whether the severe weather warning would extend to Hobart, effectively cancelling the day to seeing the conditions when we arrived. What a stark difference.
Fully expecting to spend the day on C Rig, but there was confusion over an A or B rig to start with. A wise soul suggested we all suit up with B's and will all be the same, which was unanimously agreed with.
Les Hanson - having just returned from sunning himself in Qld - ran the day for us today, giving us 9 races in all.
We also had a visit again from Tes, Steven from up north. Unfortunately a difficult day for him in the confusing conditions.
A lot of confusion during races. the wind was everywhere and nowhere. Sailors on the beat alongside others on a run. Big C rig gusts flying down the dam - only to disappear just before it hit us, followed by absolutely still conditions.
At the end of the day, Michael Hickman came out a clear winner - the pairing with his new V11 certainly agreeing with him. First place with 16 points.
Taking second today, was Lisa Blackwood on 12 points, with Ray Joyce only two further behind in third, on 24 points.
On handicap, Kyle continued his great run with the Britpop!, winning handicap with 4 net points (handicap penalties catching up now though). Andrew Wardrop enjoyed a good return to Sunday sailing at the dam with a second on handicap (as well as a race win) with 2 net points, which Michael Hickmana nd Ray Joyce shared third spot with 1 net point.
This coming Wednesday is the return or IOM Mid Week Handicap, with button press at 11am.
Next Sunday is RM Scratch at the dam, button press at 10am.
