17 May Spring Series Race 10
There were 20 starters this morning and at the end of the first lap Hadey (4.7) was leading followed by Mick G (Otter), Peter S (Byte), John C (Topaz) and Sylvia (Radial). Ominously for the boats in front of her Karen was already through to 6th having just got past Steve S (Solo), William (Topper) and Mike C (Solo). Newton & Ellen in the Laser 2000 were next through just in front of Ken and Phil A both in Lasers. At the rear of the fleet Eddie decided to retire before last starter Steve (out in his galleon) could catch him.
Hadey was still leading after the second lap, but Karen had moved up to 2nd and Ian C (Supernova) to 3rd with Ken P 4th. Phil A (Laser) had moved up from 12th to 6th, Curtis (Laser) from 15th to 11th and Rod and Dean both in Lasers had moved up two places to 12th and 13th.
At the gun Karen was through to 1st, Ian 2nd and Ken 3rd with Hadey 4th, Curtis 5th and Peter S 6th.
Other notable movers on the third lap were Rod up to 7th and Dave P (another Laser) up to 8th.
Phil A should have been hereabout, but he seems to have been missed out by the OOD team.
Steve S was just ahead of Mike C in the battle of the Solos and behind them were Sylvia, Newton & Ellen and then a trio of Lasers, James P, Dean and Dave L.
Thanks to the OOD Team of Peter R, Rachael G, Nick J, John H, John M and Richard H.
