It was a pleasant evening with a SW3/4 blowing. The Sailing Secretary set a line upwind of 3 with the course being 0-1-A-3. There were 14 starters.
Ken helming the GP tacked off onto port following the start and it initially seemed to pay off but it was the single handers who were soon at the front of the fleet with Neil sailing really well and leading Tony and Jim. Then came the four GP’s with Ken and Sue keeping up with the conventionally helmed Mike & Joan but split by Hazel’s Radial.
By the end of lap 2 Tony’s Solo had a slight lead over Neil’s Laser but Jim had retired the Nova. Bob Gate’s Radial and John’s Pico were then finished on two laps before Tony led the three lappers across the line. The exception was Eric Wasilewski who capsized his laser during a gybe and retired.
Of the awards Neil took Senior, Hazel Junior and Ken Crew. Julie in her L2000 won the Ladies Trophy. Simon and Steve were competing in their L2000 but Steve’s wife was on hand and had prepared a superb meal.
