A cold & chilly morning at the dam today. 4 deg driving to the dam & definately a bit colder than that at the dam. but the good thing was we had a steady middle to upper A Rig NW breeze coming down the dam making for some good sailing conditions. The RO today was John Smith who ran a 3 race series with 2 shorter races & 1 long distance race. Fleet consisted of about 10 IOM's & 3 DF95's. In the first race with the DF 95's off scratch & the backmarkers off 2 minutes & everyone else in between the DF95's easily filled the first 3 places so for the second race the DF95's were bought back to 90 seconds with the first of the IOM,s. One DF dropped out with rigging damage but the remaining 2 took first & second. As the handicappng was clearly not coping with the DF's the owners in the interest of fairness made themselves ineligable for the days prizes.
There were no changes in handicap for the very enjoyable final long distance race . At the end of the day the winner was Wayne Turner from Dave Murfet & Rob Cooney. So congratuations to the winners & thanks to John Smith for his RO efforts.
Next Sunday is IOM handicap at 11.00 am
