Final Championship Weekend Series

Although the forecast was not very promising, the wind did fill in to get racing underway, but it then started to swing more to the East. William and Lezli-Ann Pearson were squeezed off the line by Sam Hall 🙁 which took them most of the beat to pull back, only to be caught port and starboard by Toggle. Clearly that race was not meant to be, and although they broke 3 mins clear, it wasn’t enough to beat Jim Christie or Toggle. The line was moved to suit the new wind direction, and the lap length shortened. Although the OD’s plan was for a short race, he felt 15 min was a little too brief so the fleet went round again only for the wind to die – the 2nd and final lap took 35 mins! This time Sam Hall took the honours, on handicap, from William with Neil Garrison 3rd. Sam takes the overnight lead.

In the F15s, positions were consistent with Mike and Kayla winning both races from Tim.

Dave and Lynn Lawson won both GP races. Dave Nicholson and Sarah Wilkinson were 2nd, but didn’t sail the final race. Val and Ken Bell made do with a 3rd and 2nd, to lie 2nd overnight.

The Mirror results were a lot more mixed, and interestingly all three helms presently have 4 points. It is Toddy that takes the overnight lead having won the 2nd race.
