Sunset Shield 6 – 15th September 2021
It was a lovely evening, but there was only a 4-5 mph wind from the NNW. Darren used a CB start down near Tektona with a first beat to 5 then to A (on the buoy line halfway between 5 and 4), C (towards no 2) and back through the start
.Newton & Sam (RS200) led Mike T and Karen in Lasers by 10 seconds at the end of the first lap followed by the Solos of Mike C and Roland S battling for 4th place. Nigel (Laser) was next across the line in a lonely 6th with Emily (4.7) a further two minutes behind him. Sally (Comet) and Alessandro & Matt (470) came through in close company followed by Martin (Radial) and Aileen (Comet). Next across the line was young Jack being mentored by Ron in one of the growing fleet of Mirrors and finally Angus in another Mirror and Carston in a Laser. Everyone behind 7th man Nigel received a finish at the end of this first lap.
On the second and last lap there was only one change in position with Roland just pipping Mike C across the line to take 4th spot. The final order was –
1st Newton & Sam; 2nd Mike T; 3rd Karen; 4th Roland S; 5th Mike C; 6th Nigel.
On corrected time this becomes –
1st Mike T; 2nd Newton & Sam; 3rd Roland S; 4th Karen; 5th Mike C; 6th Emily
Thanks to SOOD Darren and Mike A and Jamie H for running the race and thanks to Jeremy for helping us to put the safety boats away.
