This weekend concluded the last series for inclusion on the prize list for the annual dinner. Saturday was a glorious day, but the wind was somewhat shy. It didn’t stop Leila Cook and Sue Watson in their GP notching up a couple of good positions in the October series. By Sunday morning Steve Hunt had decided he ‘would let them win it’ – it had nothing to do with the fact they couldn’t be caught did it?!
Little wind, no official starter and no rescue crews left OD Nick Smith with quite a task on his hands. But he wasn’t to be beaten. He managed to get the two races in, and cook lunch (well a posh noodle), and do some of the results as well! No excitement ion the races really, William and Emily Carruthers may have been first onto the water, but they were last to cross the start line when Nick decided he wasn’t going to wait for them to get to the line. Bill Smith in his RS800, was several minutes late for the start as well, and then missed a mark out (but went back some time later).
None of these antics were going to prevent Leila and Sue from securing the series, so they’ll have to hunt out those posh frocks again for the prize giving dinner.
