Nice crisp morning with a good wind with the first race being won by Danny and the second by Steve.
Despite two terrible starts Danny won both races from Steve in light to no wind. Jake was leading on handicap for much of the time but faded towards the end of both races and just lost out.
Very gusty northwesterly up to F6 in the first race. Lots of capsizes. Nicolette on Safety Boat dived in to help a struggling Topper. Steve won the first and lost a close battle for the second with Andrew.
A good beat showed the technical skills of the sailors with slightly gusty winds in the first race.
November 5th tradition ensued as the club Commodore plotted to shorten the second race using the “Commodore’s prerogative” as the increased.
In flukey light winds from the north it looked like Danny had won both races by miles, but the wind got up at the end of the second race and Rex powered through to win his first race of the series.
A brilliant sunny day but 5 foot waves on the slipway (allegedly) and blowing F6-8 (so they say).
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.
