Soling Racing 6/20/23

It was a rather chilly, but sunny start to the morning with a light breeze. By the race start time it was warmer and a very pleasant time for sailing so it was disappointing that only four members turned up today. Bill Raposa won 3 races and had 2 second places to top the short listing today. Well sailed, Bill.

The other Bill, Bill David, was second with 2 wins, 1 second, and 2 thirds.

Kim was equal on points with Bill, but Bill took the place by virtue of 2 wins against Kim’s one.

Kim had 3 second places and two thirds, one of which was his throwout.

My boat only finished one race before it got rather wet inside. Bill David had a problem and didn’t finish the last of the six races as his sail servo suffered severe stress!

Surviving it all was Bill’s wife, Judy who did her usual perfect job of starting and scoring. Many thanks, Judy. 

The full results can be found on our website,

On Thursday, the DF95s take to the water with the tide coming in, with a high at noon.

The next opportunity for the Solings to race will be next Tuesday, June 27thwhen the tide will be mid-level coming in to a high at 3.35 pm

Come on, Soling sailors, best foot forward and all that………………
