Easter Cup 2017

Good Friday 14th April
There were two races today and two scheduled for Easter Monday. Newton set the first beat to 4, then 2, 5, 8, 6, 7, and back through the start.
Race 1
There were 7 starters and first back through the line was Paul (Aero) followed by Karen (Laser), Jon (Laser), Ralph (Laser), Richard S (Laser), Adrian (Rooster) and Chris H (Comet).
The only change on the second lap was Adrian getting past Richard to move up one place.
On the third and last lap Richard had repassed Adrian and gained another place by passing Ralph as well.
Final positions on handicap should be –
1st Paul; 2nd Karen; 3rd Jon; 4th Richard S; 5th Ralph; 6th Chris H
Race 2
The same starters and again Paul and Karen came back through the line in 1st and 2nd followed by Ralph, Adrian, Jon, Richard and Chris.
By the end of the second lap Jon had moved up to 2nd and Adrian and Richard had both got past Ralph to move to 4th and 5th respectively.
On the third lap the two leaders were unchanged, but Ralph had gained three places moving up to 3rd and Adrian though still in 4th place had passed Karen.
At the end of the fourth and last lap  there was no change at the front but Adrian had gained another place to move up to 3rd.   
1st Paul; 2nd Jon; 3rd Ralph; 4th Karen; 5th Richard; 6th Adrian
Thanks to Newton and the OOD Team of Andy B and John C.
Easter Monday 17th April
Another two races today and Chris H had relinquished the helm of his Comet to take up SOOD duty.
Notable absentees were Paul, Jon and Ralph from the original starters on Friday.
Race 3
There were 9 starters and first back through the line was Adrian (Rooster) followed by Karen and Richard S in Lasers. Steve S (Solo) came through in 4th place just ahead of Hadey (Radial), then there was a gap back to Alistair S (Laser), Dave I (Laser), Sylvia & Peter (RS200) and Chris & Carol (420),
good to see them back on the water after their winter hibernation!
The only changes in position on the second and last lap were Sylvia and Peter gaining two places and Dave I one place.
Final positions on handicap should be –
1st Steve S; 2nd Karen; 3rd Richard S; 4th Hadey; 5th Adrian; 6th Sylvia & Peter
Race 4
With Dave I dropping out there were 8 starters for the second race and as for the first race Adrian and Karen were first back through the line. Steve S came through in 3rd with a gap back to Richard S in 4th with Sylvia & Peter 5th and another gap back to Hadey in 6th. Chris & Carol were 7th just ahead of Alistair S.
The only change on the last lap was Alistair getting past Chris & Carol.  
Final positions on handicap should be –
1st Steve S; 2nd Karen; 3rd Adrian; 4th Richard S; 5th Sylvia & Peter; 6th Hadey.
Thanks to Chris H and the OOD Team of Bill C, Sophie F-P and Richard H.
With three races to count for the Easter Cup it looks as if Karen with three second places should take the cup with Richard S as runner up and Adrian in overall 3rd place.
