13th June 2019
A cold overcast but dry evening, with a favourable wind from the NW, gave us good conditions on B rig for an entertaining evenings sail. Ten skippers turned out and with Derek as RO, we were off prompt at 6.30pm.
A start mid lake with a beat to a windward mark towards the top end, and then a long run down to a gate by the bridge, beat back up to mid lake windward mark, run back down to the gate, then a beat to a finish was our course for the night.
Ken`s night got off to a bad start as he succumbed to servo problems early on, and had to sit out most of the event.
As usual, it was clear that it was going to be between John and Garry who took the honours. As they shared the majority of the bullets. Some close races were had for the rest of the fleet, a mention for Bob Jones, Eric and Walter who all had some fine results and battled it out for third spot, Bob just taking it by a couple of points.
So it was Garry who took it on the night, by just a point, his second victory in this series.
Our next 65 event is on Thurs 20th June 6.30pm.
