Thursday 14th June
B rig verging on C conditions greeted the eight skippers as we made it onto the water. B rig was the sail of choice, as we moved the course up the lake to where it was less choppy and friendlier, it worked well and we managed to stay on the same rig all evening, although boats were tending to nose dive on the downwind run early on, but that lessened as the races progressed, and the wind dropped a touch.
Eight races were done in the time, with a couple of two lap longer ones towards the end in what weren’t easy conditions, but it was Eddie who was unstoppable, he had set his boat up perfectly, and took seven bullets out of the eight, and was the runaway winner for the event with six points, with the usual two of Chris and John fighting it out between them for second.
Many thanks to Peter for his race officer duties.
Our next event in Series 2 is on Thurs 21st June at 6.30pm.
