Only eight boats out but four changes of leader in a race which OD John Reekie felt should be short and to the point as safety cover was limited to Chas. Not that it was particularly windy but the gust coming around Sale Fell caught out nearly everyone.
The first leaders were Mike & Eric but they took the wrong course. Then it was Tony but he capsized on a gybe. So Pete & Lottie took a clear lead until they had a swim and then went head to wind at the windward mark leaving Mike & Eric back where they started – at the front!
Tony repeated his earlier manoeuvre capsizing at the wing mark but he held on to second ahead of Pete & Lottie. Eric turtled and then made for the Club leaving Neil, David, Nigel and Bob to finish in that order.
Back in the Clubhouse Dave & Lynn were preparing the meal while Val & Ken were spectating after a day of shearing the sheep.
Thanks to Neil for helping with launching and recovery.
