Penultimate Weekend Series

With the onset of Autumn, the nip in the air resulted in a greater use of wooly bears and dry suits despite the winds being unusually light. After a closely fought race in the F15s, in which Scott’s head started to spin after having to do turns for Mike Moore, Saturday’s second race was cancelled due to lack of wind.Sunday morning wasn’t much better for Scott when he tried to squeeze in at the start line but had to do more turns for Ian Campbell. A wind shift at the second mark enabled Wendy Somerville to take the lead from William Carruthers, Ian Campbell took advantage of the situation also, and then passed William and Wendy. Mike Moore wasn’t to miss out on taking the lead when he sailed a fine beat on the following leg. The lead continued to change, and Scott quickly caught up to have his chance at the front of the fleet.  Later in the race Ian Campbell had to do turns for William, a mistake from which he didn’t recover! On the final leg Wendy took advantage of a small wind shift and pipped Scott at the post.

Wendy took an early lead in the final race, only to be passed by Ian. When Ian and Wendy started to round a mark the wrong way, William took advantage of the situation and took the lead through to the end of the race.

All in all some very close racing.
