Summer Series – 14th August 2022

Another good turnout – 14 boats racing, including 5 new members, and a flukey northeasterly with outgoing tide making for tricky conditions. Neil made a blistering start in the first race and sailed off into the distance but had a close battle with Robin in the second race which Robin narrowly won.

Elsewhere Danny C tried to sail off with one mark, while another was almost left high and dry by the ebbing tide making rounding tricky for some. Csaba had a good first couple of laps in a Laser Radial and was up with the full rigs until led the wrong side of yellow by Andy.

Overall, a first and second helped Neil move into 2nd position, behind Danny. Andrew in his cat is holding onto 3rd but with his first and second Robin, on the same points, is breathing down his neck. Nick with two excellent third places has cemented his position at the front of the slow fleet with Dan P in second and Chris in third.

There are four races left in the series, including the Pursuit Race next week.
