A rather cloudy day failed to entice many members down to the shore A temperature of 68 and a brisk breeze from the south made ideal conditions for these little boats, but only six boats raced today. I kept score and was later aided by Wilkie who retired after the first five races. Thank you, Wilkie.
There was a straightforward course this morning: South to the red and green mark and the orange mark, taken to starboard, then downwind to the red and blue mark, taken to starboard, then back to the line.
Paul Mercer won the first race, with Rich Field second and Nick Bailey third and it so happens that that was how they finished overall at the end of the twelve races.
Paul won a total of eight races and finished in second place once and had one third.
Rich had eight seconds and two thirds while Nick had two wins, two seconds, and six thirds
Others finishing in the top three places in individual races were Kim with two wins and two thirds and Jim Kelly with one second and one third.
Well done everyone. we had some close racing today, it was just a shame that there weren’t more competitors to grab a piece of the fun
