Unfortunately, not too much to say today as I wasn't there for long.
The sailors all started off in their swing rigs, with about 6 knots on the water, however, about half way through the day, the sea breeze turned up and everyone went from their A's straight to the C rigs.
Eleven races were completed, with the usual suspects fighting out at the top of the order.
Stu Dawes taking out the round, with 16 points. Ray Joyce came in second, four behind on 22, with Lisa Blackwood taking out third, a further two back on 22 points.
Handicap today was quite close. Stu Dawes and Rod Marshall took out top spot (Stu seeded 3, and finishing 1st for a net of 2, and Rod finishing 4th with a ranking of 6th, also for a net 2 pts). In third spot, was Ray, Lisa, John and Andrew, all with -1 net pts
A highlight of the day was seeing John Hall launch his new F-6. The yacht looks fantastic, and with a few weeks under his belt, I'm sure John will be right in the mix. Photo attached.
That rounds out the scratch sailing for the RM's for 2021. I have updated the series scores now, and there have been some really tight scores for the summer, winter and overall series. All will be revealed at the breakup lunch at MBYC on Sunday 19th.
This coming Wednesday is DF95 Handicap, at the dam - normal starting time. Next weekend, we have the RM State Championship, which has been relocated to the dam due to unsuitable tides. Saturday will start slightly late to allow for the regular dam runners/walkers to finishe their day. I'll emial details later, but in short, we will be movng the times out by half an hour throughout Saturday to allow turnup/registration from 10am instead of 0930. Any volunteers for the two day event would be greatly appreciated. We wont need rescue crew as such, but a few observers over the two days would be really appreciated. Contact either myself or John Hall if you think you can help out.
