Light wind but an unseasonably warm day. Felt more like July than mid October. Charlie Brookes sailed his first races as crew for his Dad. Was he forward of the mast? 😉
On a sunny and very light wind day Danny won the only race crewed by his daughter Isla (as ‘lookout’). Now that discards have come in, Danny leads the series in the Fast fleet with Neil second and Steve third. In the Slow fleet Nigel leads with newcomer Josh Edwards in second and Teilo third.
Andrew was leading in challenging conditions (F5-6 and very choppy) when he lost his mainsheet on the last lap AND NEIL WENT ON TO WIN.
In a light easterly and strong tide Danny gets another two firsts and leads the series by miles.
Danny wins the first 2 races of the new series in light to moderate westerly and full on sun, and but only just. Nigel was a close 2nd in the second race.
It didn’t seem like Summer. A lumpy boat breaking day (fortunately no boats were broken) with southeasterly F5.
Danny won the Fast Fleet with Steve 2nd in the RS700 and Neil 3rd. Teilo won the Slow.
Rex was the only competitor for the Centripump Cup which he won on the 20th August. At his request, the race was re-run on the 27th August and was won by Jake Richardson.
The wind was very light to non-existent in the second race and it was abandoned.
Steve wins the Watler Cup in a Laser and Rex wins the Centripump in a F4 Southerly with rain.
Very light South Easterly wind. Second race was abandoned 35 minutes after start.
Danny wins the pursuit in a race decided by who hit the windward mark least.
