Summer Series 5 – 25th July 2021

With a fairly light NW wind Newton set the start near to Tektona and came back up the lake to A in the middle then B (near the buoy line) down to 2, 4, 1 and back through the start.

Pursuit Race

At the end of the first lap the early starters were still ahead with Chris H (Comet) leading from Ron (Mirror) with Dave & Ann (Leader) in 3rd place followed by Paul W (Morbic). Roland S (Solo) and Karen (Laser) were together contesting 5th place, closely followed by Mike C (Solo) and Aileen (Comet.

At the gun the final order was – 1st Chris H; 2nd Karen; 3rd Darren; 4th Dave & Ann; 5th Roland S; 6th Chris K.

Handicap Race

Five Lasers nose to tail led the fleet back through the line, Karen, Mark, Darren, Chris K and Ralph. Roland S (Solo) crossed in 6th place followed by Chris H (Comet), Dave & Ann (Leader) Mike C in the second Solo and Aileen in her Comet. Rick & Lottie were next along flying the flag for the RS200s, followed by Ron (Mirror), Milo (Radial) and Paul W (Morbic).

Darren was up to 2nd place by the end of the second lap with Ralph up to 4th and Chris H up to 6th. Further back Ron and Milo had caught and passed Rick & Lottie.  Milo, Rick & Lottie and Paul W all received the gun at the end of this lap.

On the last lap there were no changes in position, so the final order was – 1st Karen; 2nd Darren; 3rd Mark; 4th Ralph; 5th Chris K; 6th Chris H.

On corrected time the only change is Chris H moving up to 1st place pushing everyone else down one.
