Boxing Day Cup 26th December 2018

With a light wind from the South Jon set the first beat to X (not exactly sure where that was, but imagine somewhere towards No 9) then 5, 7, 6, and back through the start.

Seven sprightly sailors set out, presumably they had managed to avoid the excesses of Christmas Day to make the start line.

The first lap took over 30 minutes and first back through the line was Mike T (Laser) with Dean & Nick (Vago) nor far behind him. Nearly six minutes later Chris H (Comet) came through followed a minute later by Nev in his Comet. Jules in her Mirror was fifth across the line some four minutes ahead of Ron in his Mirror (obviously Ron had been getting stuck into the Christmas pud which slowed him considerably. Jules said that had not made the slightest difference!)

The second lap was considerable quicker and nearly everyone halved their first lap time. The order across the line was exactly the same, but there appeared to be some doubt about the time recorded for Chris.

The final order on the water was –

1st Mike T; 2nd Dean & Nick; 3rd Nev or it might have been Chris; 4th Nev or it might have been Chris; 5th Jules; 6th Ron

On corrected time Mike T takes the Cup, but Jules moves up to 2nd with Dean & Nick in 3rd place.

Thanks to Jon and the small OOD Team of David C and Brian; the rest of the team remained at home recovering, but well done to the three stalwarts who turned out.
