Gillette Series 1 – 17th April 2019
The highest turn out of the year so far with 27 starters. There was a good turnout of our younger sailors, Jemima, Ed and Phoebe in Oppies, Emily in her Topper and Rhys and Joe in Lasers. A couple of our older sailors also returned from their winter hibernation, welcome back to Chris A and Richard H.
In fairly light wind the race was a three lapper, although eight of the boats were finished after completing two laps.
The finishing order on the water was –
1st Ralph – Laser; 2nd Nev & Mike – Leader; 3rd Mike T – Laser; 4th Paul R – Aero 7; 5th Newton – Solo; 6th Chris – Solo; 7th Hugh – Laser; 8th Karen – Laser.
On corrected time our Oppie aces jump up the leader board and the order becomes –
1st Jemima – Oppie; 2nd Ed – Oppie; 3rd Nev & Mike – Leader; 4th Ron – Mirror; 5th Ralph – Laser; 6th Mike T – Laser; 7th Newton – Solo; 8th Paul – Aero
Unfortunately, I was not present, and the race sheet seems to have gone missing, but thank you to the SOOD and his team and sorry for not including your names in this brief report.
