Frost Bite 2 – 16th December 2018
With a very light wind from a Northerly direction, Newton used a Committee Boat start near Tecktona with the first mark as X (set in the middle of the lake in line with 5) then back to 4, 2 and back through the start.
There were 13 starters this morning and first back through the line was Mike T in a Laser followed by three more Lasers, Jon, Hugh and Ralph, then Karen with a Radial rig. The first double hander was Nev & Mike (Leader) in 6th place with Sally & Mike C in another Leader and Dean & Nick in their Vago, crossing the line together, behind them. Adrian (Laser) was next through just ahead of Dave I (Radial) and Chris H (Comet). About two minutes later along came Dave & Ann in the third Leader with Jeremy (Laser) not far behind.
No change in the first two at the end of the second lap, but Ralph had passed Hugh to move up to 3rd and Dean & Nick had moved up three places to 4th. Further back Chris H had gained two places passing Adrian and Dave I.
On the last lap Mike T crossed the line in 1st having led for the whole of the race. Ralph gained another place to take 2nd place. Chris H also gained a place by passing Sally & Mike to move up to 8th but that was the only other change in order.
The final positions on the water were –
1st Mike T; 2nd Ralph; 3rd Jon; 4th Nick & Dean; 5th Hugh; 6th Nev & Mike
On corrected time the first three keep their positions, but Nev & Mike move up to 4th with Chris H up to 5th and Karen up to 6th.
Thanks to Newton and the OOD Team of Jill G, Mark D, Nigel J, and Oscar & Steve G.
