November Cup – Racing Report
Before the race started Reading Sailing Club observed the 2 minutes silence , some members performed this quietly in their boats on the water whilst others stood by the log . the whistle blew and the boats entered the water and the countdown for the race started.
Jon and Mark noticed the wind had changed just slightly to make the port side of the line to have the advantaged but this has a habit of changing again at the last minute to make it definitely the wrong end .So being a handicap race all the boats crossed the start line at the same time.
At this early stage we knew Bob in his Solo was going to be up with the others battling for top spot. Karen performed an amazing piece of brilliance to show us all how not to perform a roll tack, she was left swimming back to her boat!
Peter had to retire due to his mainsheet separating . Never heard of that before Peter. I can only guess you doing an impersonation of Kate Winslet on the Titanic!
So the results were
1st Bob, 2nd Chris, 3rd. Mike and Sally
