Cobley Series 2020 – 18th October

This week there was no wind when everyone turned up and there was not a lot of interest but then the wind filled in a little so they decided to venture out. The OOD volunteers today were Karen and Stuart and with a light shifty WSW wind they set a course of A, 8, 5, 6, 7 and back through the start.

Pursuit Race

First away were Chris H, Nev and Sally in Comets followed by Dave & Ann (Leader) then finally the Lasers of Newton, Mark, Darren and Ralph.

At the end of the first lap the Lasers had caught and passed the rest of the fleet so Mark led from Newton, Darren and Ralph. Chris H came through in 5th place ahead of Nev with Dave & Ann 7th and Sally 8th.

At the gun the order was –

1st Newton; 2nd Mark; 3rd Ralph; 4th Darren; 5th Dave & Ann; 6th Nev 

Handicap Race

Unfortunately the wind died off for the second race and it became a slow one lap affair.

The finishing order on the water was – 1st Darren; 2nd Ralph; 3rd Mark; 4th Chris H; 5th Newton; 6th Sally; 7th Jess; 8th Dave & Ann; 9th Nev.

On corrected time the order becomes – 1st Darren; 2nd Chris H; 3rd Sally; 4th Ralph; 5th Nev; 6th Mark.

Thanks to Karen and Stuart for running the races and as Karen recorded on the race sheet “Glad I was SOOD!”
