Summer Series 9 – 29th July 2018

Well it could be that the long hot dry spell is over. It was wet and windy this morning. The wind was SE/ESE 13 – 18 mph. Paul R used a start line with a committee boat attached to buoy 5 and the first mark X was in the direction of buoy 1 then 9, 4, 6, 5 and back through the start.

Pursuit Race
There were 9 starters and they managed to get three laps in before the hooter sounded to finish the race. The final order was –
1st John H – Laser; 2nd Mike Tr – Laser; 3rd Jamie H – Laser; 4th Chris H – Comet; 5th Franz- Laser; 6th Ben H – Radial; 7th 130022 – Laser (apologies for not getting your name); 8th Ron – Mirror

Handicap Race
Jamie H and Ken P did not take part in the second race and Paul shortened the course slightly by dropping No 5. The remaining seven completed five laps, apart from Ron in his Mirror who received the gun after four laps, having just been lapped by the winner Mike Tr.
The final positions on the water were –
1st Mike Tr; 2nd John H; 3rd Franz; 4th Ben H; 5th Chris H; 6th Laser 130022; 7th Ron.

On handicap the order will remain the same apart from Ron leapfrogging up to 2nd.
