Well, what a challenging day we had today
Started in B Rig conditions, but the wind was all over the place on the water, and for many, it seemed that most tacks were into unseen headers. Very difficult conditions. A very low tide also made things difficult, with event he rescue dinghy finding issue with the lack of depth around stricken yachts.
Just eight races were completed, as we had some extended breaks to move buoys out a bit further to reduce the casualty list with grounded yachts.
That said, the cream, as always still rises to the top, and this week, Lisa Blackwood came out well on top with just 8 points from the 8 races. Ray Joyce came in in a rare second position on 15, and then we had a three way tie for third, with Rod Marshall on 27 points, taking the place on countback from John Hall and Les Hanson.
Unfortunately, a hard day on the water, but we hope to have the championship course set up by next weekend, so when the conditions aren’t entirely favourable, we will have a choice of courses to use.
