Untypically Tropical

Yes, although Autumn arrived on Friday, those sailors not venturing to various open meetings enjoyed clear blue skies and warm, strong winds.

In the Flying 15s, William Carruthers and Alan Smith took the lead in the first race and held off Ian Campbell and Tony Fisher, even on numerous magnificent reaches and spinnaker legs. In the second race Ian lead from the start but on the second beat William’s boom outhaul broke and made various precarious attempts to effect a tempoary repair. In so doing Ian broke away and Paul Burnell, with Margaret Trotter, got through to second place. However, Willam managed to get back into second place but was unable to break Ian’s commanding lead.

Ginge and Jose Hodgkins seemed to wear out their opposition! – In the 1st race Wendy Lewis retired, while in the 2nd race John Sharp took a cautious route, but stayed upright and finished 2nd.

These races brought another long series to a close. Overall results;
