The Commodore’s Coms had reminded members to compete but the turn out was less than hoped for. No sign of a GP, just one FF, and just the Handicap Fleets to keep the activity level buoyant.
Yes, it was chilly but there were no particularly strong winds and even a little sunshine late on. The fourteen Handicap Fleet boats included Mike & Kayla’s Fifteen which had some close racing with Steve & Ruth in the Merlin but no one could match Mark’s 100 in either race. Alex / Olivia and Ethan were closely matched near the front in race 2.
The Slow Handicap fleet consisted of Mik’s Mirror and Matthew and Cameron in Teras. When Mik trawled his kite in race 1 it looked to be Matthew’s for the taking but the Mirror just held on. Race 2 was a short affair but the brothers weren’t to know this and retired at zero leaving Mik with another win.
