Soggy Sunday

A drizzly start to the day cleared before the sailors started to rig their boats, but then came back during racing! William and Lesley in an RS400 led the handicap fleet and made use of the occasional gusts to get a clear lead sufficient to win the race from Joan and Jack Hardie in their RS200 by 1.5 mins on corrected time. The next couple of results were much closer with Toggle in a Vareo being just 10 secs behind, followed by Tim Chittenden/Ian Macpherson in a F15 20 secs later. Phil Davenport practised his capsize technique at a windward mark – anything to get a mention?

Dave and Lynn again led the way in the GPs from Mike/Eric with Alan Nicholson/Sue Watson 3rd.

The afternoon pennant race went as far around the lake as the insitu marks would allow! With wind from the SW, Sale Fell had its inimitable effect on the winds south of Scarness. Tim/Ian led the fleet round the course, but on handicap, it was Dave/Lynn that won, followed by Mike/Eric

These results counted towards Sandra’s Salver for lady crews. Although Lynn Lawson took first position, Sue Watson’s 2nd, together with her results in the first qualifying race was sufficient for her to head the leader board.
