It was another warm evening. The wind filed in from the South West and eighteen crews set off on a 0-A-2-B course. Paul and Vicky in their GP weren’t quite over at the start and led down the beat. But Ian / Mike in the FF and John in his Solo were first around the windward mark. Val & Ken were ahead of Mike & Eric at this point but dropped to the back of the fleet with some issue which could not be seen from the Bates.
Tony in the Solo was also further back than usual. And Neil’s laser and Rory’s Solo were keeping pace with James & Jenny in their 2000 with its colourful kite. Katia & Dad were going well ahead of Mother in another Mirror. Martin & Alison in their GP missed out B but turned back when prompted by the OD.
Ian /Mike led the three lap finishers with John finishing strongly ahead of Paul & Vicky.
Jon Anson was on meal duty and turned up with three large cases. He said that even he didn’t know what was in them but there looked to be plenty for all.
