Summer 10 – Racing Report and Lex Cup – Racing Report

Sunday’s race saw the SOOD Mike trying to use every mark on the lake to entertain the 18 racers, plus a shortish line……lots of crossing of courses up and down the lake. Chris in his Firefly made the perfect start and then seemed to disappear…..what happened Chris?
It was a steady wind, a splash or two of rain, but a fun race – well Lynne and Steve seemed to be having a lot of fun with their spinnaker….the results were:
1st Ian in his Supanova, followed by Chris in his Laser and Roger, who though arriving and starting late,as always, just ploughed his way through the fleet to finish in 3rd – what a ‘jammy’ devil he is!!!

Bank Holiday Monday – the Lex Cup. Not so many sailors were ‘allowed out to play’ – family stuff and all that…..Eddie and his team again tried to fit in every mark on the lake, with an enormous starting line for the 9 racers, even choosing the ‘windless’ bouy 1, where lots of chopping and changing of places took place. Little Adrian sailed the perfect race and led till the last mark when he had to give water to Ian and in doing so let Steve and Chris through as well………poor Adrian. Finishing places were 1st Ian, 2nd Chris, 3rd Steve….welcome back, we have missed you……oh yes, Monica discovered one of the advantages of being last was that you got to finish a lap before everyone else, nice one Monica!!
A LARGE technical hitch, ie Jolly Sailor couldn’t download any pictures…but watch this space….they will appear in their hundreds very soon…??!!
