A cold, wet and windy day at the dam today. This couldn't dampen (pardon the pun) the enthusiasm, with regular A sailor, Ted Stevens making the trip south to compete with us today.
A good field of nine sailors, with eleven initially turning up. Just the 5 races completed, with an enjoyable lunch and chat in between races 3 and 4.
The day was rather difficult to pick the right shifts and squalls on the water, but I am pretty sure all sailors enjoyed the sailing, and for the most part, the rain did keep fairly clear of us.
For the handicap today, Ray Joyce was the pick of the skippers, winning with just 6 points.
Hot on his heels, was Stu Dawes, second with 7 points.
Third place today was Michael Hickman, on 12 points.
For the A Class Scratch Series, John Cole-Cook edged out Michael Hickman for the win by countback, both on 6 points, with Ted Stevens taking third on 10 points.

Lastly for today, thanks to those many members who renewed their memberships over the last week. It is really appreciated, and we only have a final few left to chase up. Thanks again.
