Soling Series #17

It was hot and humid this morning at the cove but the light wind was sufficient to run seven races in our traditional course: South from the start line taking both the red and green marks to port, then north to the red mark, taken to port, and back to the line. The line was open.Eight members were there this morning, but, unfortunately. Paul Mercer ran into a problem with his beautiful new Soling and ran the starter and kept score instead. Many thanks, Paul.Bill David won the first three races, then two more which, with his two third places, made him the easy overall winner.Bill Raposa won the two races that Bill D didn’t, and with two seconds and a third, Bill R was second overall. Kim had three second places and one third to finish just one point ahead of Danny for third and fourth places respectively.The full results can be found on our website mhbmyc.orgAnother fun morning’s racing. A fun time in fun company.

The next race days will be: DF95s on Thursday, Sept. 2nd at noon when the tide will be coming in from a low at 10.17. But the consensus view today was that there will be too much rain to race. Rob will make the final call.
 Solings will race on Tuesday, Sept. 7thwhen the tide will be going out from a high at 08.56.
I won’t be at next week’s races so please watch out for any news on our website and look out for emails from Rob and Bill R.Stay safe and well and have fun,Derek
