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. Mike C and Roland in Solos were having a good battle for 4th place with Mike just ahead as they crossed the line. Nigel (Laser) came through in a lonely 6th place being chased by Emily (4.7) who was also on her own. Alex & Matt (470) crossed in 8th place being chased by Sally (Comet) who was four minutes ahead of Martin in a Radial. He was two minutes ahead of Aileen in another Comet, who in turn was two minutes ahead of Jack & Ron (Mirror), Carston (Laser) and Angus (Mirror). Alex & Matt and everyone behind them were finished at the end of this lap.
At the end of the second and final lap the only change in position of the remaining seven boats was Roland passing Mike C to take the Solo honours.
The final order on the water was – 1st Newton & Sam; 2nd Mike T; 3rd Karen; 4th Roland; 5th Mike C; 6th Nigel.
On corrected time this becomes – 1st Mike T; 2nd Newton & Sam; 3rd Roland; 4th Karen; 5th Mike C; 6th Emily.
Thanks to SOOD Darren and Mike A and Jamie H.
