Summer Series 7 – 24th July
There were 14 starters today with a reasonable SW wind and first back through the line was Chris A (Solo) followed by Richard S (Laser), Chris K (Radial), Bob (Solo), Mark B (Laser) and Ellen & Newton (RS200). Then there was a whole stream of chasing Lasers led by Karen then Luke, John W, Steve P, Gareth and Alistair S with the Rooster of Adrian and the Enterprise of Peter R mixed in the middle.
At the gun the final positions were –
1st Ellen & Newton; 2nd Richard S; 3rd Mark; 4th Karen; 5th Adrian; 6th Steve P
Peter R decided not to contest the second race so the fleet was down to 13.
Adrian got away well and at the end of the first lap was clear of a trio of Lasers, Karen, Luke and Richard S with Newton & Ellen just behind them followed by Mark.
By the end of the second lap Adrian still led, but Newton & Ellen had moved up to 3rd and Steve P and John W had managed to get past Chris K to move up to 7th and 8th respectively. In the battle of the Solos towards the back of the fleet Chris A had managed to stay ahead of Bob and Gareth had managed to get past Alistair.
At the gun Karen and Newton & Ellen crossed the line together just ahead of Adrian and this was the only change with the rest of the fleet keeping station.
Final positions on the water were –
1st; Karen; 2nd Newton & Ellen; 3rd Adrian; 4th Richard S; 5th Luke; 6th Mark
On Handicap the first two will not change but Richard S will move up to 3rd with Chris K 4th , Luke 5th and Chris A 6th.
