Spring pursuit 11 – Racing Report
Almost perfect racing conditions – sun and wind, a shame it was shifty. Karen as SOOD thought she had the perfect start line and course until the wind changed 5 minutes before the start!
Pat got off to a flying start in her Mirror and managed the first lap and a half before anyone caught up. She then got intimidated by the laser hordes and decided enough was enough, retiring gracefully. Steve in the 505 was almost lapped before he started – Steve you really should get a slower boat then you could race with the rest of the fleet.
Monica in the Europe, Bob and Jon Mc in their Solos and Chris in the Firefly were keeping ahead of the all the Lasers except David and Chris who struggled to catch Peter in the Enterprise.
Oh Monica, whatever did you do – 5th place….then you capsized and lost 5 places and all in the last 5 mins of the race!
David and Chris had a last tacking duel in the final two minutes with David the final victor but so intent were they on each other they forgot about Peter who nearly overtook them again!!
Final positions David 1st, Chris 2nd, Peter 3rd.
