A good day,s sailing in light winds with the occasional puff.
There were five boats on the water and Alan was there as a spectator. Not as many members as we might have hoped but I believe that a couple had chosen to go to a model aircraft meeting.
Racing was continuous once we had started, getting in ten races including a break for lunch. The results did put into question the problem raised in the last Club blog in that there were a variety of designs among the winning boats and no boat was dominant. Chris, who was sailing Grant,s second boat, a SIESMIC I believe, did well and all skippers did have at least one win. A good day with some very close racing in several of the heats.
Results were as follows-,
Race 1. Grant, Chris, Derek
Race 2. Derek, Hugh, Grant
Race 3. Hugh, Derek, Chris
Race 4. Derek, Leslie, Hugh
Race 5. Hugh, Grant, Leslie
Race 6. Chris, Derek, Grant
Race 7. Derek, Leslie, Grant
Race 8. Hugh, Derek, Leslie
Race 9. Leslie, Derek, Hugh
Race 10. Leslie, Hugh, Grant

A good day all round, everyone a winner at sometime, some more than once and a good smattering of seconds and thirds to keep everone happy.
Hope to see you all on the 2nd of October. Derek.
