4th January Frost Bite 7

A frosty dull morning with light SE wind reduced the starters to only 7 boats, but did see the first outing for Hugh and Hadey in their new Leader.

Richard S took the wise precaution of setting a short course, in case the wind disappeared completely, with a first beat to 5 then down to X (just North of Tektona), back to 9 and across to 6 and back through the start line.
Steve S (Solo) led at the first mark with Mike A (Laser) next followed by Steve P in the 505 and this was the order at the end of the first lap. Newton & Roz (Laser 2000) were 4th, Curtis (Laser) 5th, Hugh & Hadey (Leader) 6th and Alistair S (Laser) 7th.
On the second lap Steve P passed Mike, who in turn had passed Steve S, to come through the line in the lead. The positions behind these three remained unchanged.
At the end of the third and final lap Mike A crossed the line in 1st place with Steve P in 2nd and Steve S in 3rd, however on handicap Steve S will take the honours with Newton & Roz 2nd and Mike 3rd with Hugh & Hadey pipping Curtis for 4th.
