Championship is Finalised

On Saturday, sun and rain with the wind forcing its way either side of Sale Fell provided some interesting conditions for the final weekend series of the season. Robbie D in an RS400 had super lightweight crew Ethan on board and quickly pulled into the lead, never looking back. The GPs were led by Dave and Lynn Lawson, and the most exciting bit for the rescue crews was when Dave and Sarah Nicholson capsized (photos to be revealed!)

The forecast for Sunday was miserable, and when the sailors arrived it looked as if it was to be right – it was raining cats and dogs, the wind was blowing away from the clubhouse so that no-one could tell how windy it really was! Lynn Lawson seemed to be leading the way in terms of being positive about going sailing, while everyone else continued to watch the rain and contemplate. But the OD was convinced that there would be some starters if he ventured out to set a line, so he did. Of course, he was right. The sailors casually got changed to avoid getting wet rigging their boats (what are sailors like?), and set out for the start. The conditions were nothing like that expected. The patches of black water rarely had enough power to enable planing conditions. In the handicap fleet, Scumper (with Robbie D crewing) banged a corner on the right hand side of the course, and reached the windward mark with William and Lesley closely on his tail. The unusual conditions enabled William to pass to leeward of Scumper and take the lead until the penultimate beat (when the water was flattened by a downpour) when Scumper was lifted just sufficiently to get round the mark ahead of William. Both boats went their separate ways on the next run, but Scumper kept the lead when he had water on William. With a final 100 yds to the finish William immediately tacked off on to port. One final tack into the finish line and William crossed the line inches ahead.

The GPs were lead around the course by Dave and Lynn, with Mike and Eric second

After a lunchtime hearing about Herb’s speeding fine, several boats called it a day (not because of Herb!) as the wind had surprisingly continued to ease.
