The morning gusts had eased by the time racing started but there was still a good sailing breeze to keep the sailors happy. A shift in the wind took resulted in a somewhat biased beat for a while, but such is Bass!
Neil and Judith Currie were tempted back on to the water by the lighter airs, but at one stage Judith missed her toestraps and was dragged along with the boat as she clung on to her jib sheet. Neil soon had her back in the boat and they continued with the race. Scumper and Robbie D with Big E each had a win on handicap. Jim Christie lost his rig when a U bolt gave way, but no real damage done.
Gary Mansell fought his fears and went out for a brief sail with William in the RS400. One beat was enough as a taster but he will be back for more….
While Andy Smith waits for his new GP, he took to the water to give Telf, Mik and Alan a run for their money in the Mirror fleet. Telf and Andy each had a win a piece
Kayla went out in Mike F15 with Tom – each thought the other was helming! Anyway, they had a pleasant sail and no incidents.
In the GPs Mike and Eric shared the honours with Paul Bowmer and his wife, with Paul taking overnight lead.
Overall some close racing across all of the fleets. The series concludes tomorrow.
