Sunday started with a light SW breeze. Not sure whether Hugh had slept in, or was just being casual, but the OD opted to delay starting the race until Hugh could get to the line. It did him no harm as he quickly had the lead in the asymmetric fleet, but it would soon be a case of all change as the lead changed a couple of times, first by the Hardies in their RS200, and then by the Hallidays in their RS400. Roy also had his moment finishing 2nd behind the Hardies on handicap.
Steve/Ruth led the other fleet of non-asymmetrics, and pulled out sufficiently from Mike/Kayla , and the GPs, to win on handicap. Finishing order was the same in the 2nd race enabling Steve to close the gap on Dave/Lynn who lead the series.
The wind freshened slightly in the afternoon, and there were a few capsizes, most of them being by Peter Ballard as he tried to master taking down his gennaker! The stronger wind helped Banter have some close racing with the Hardies who secured another win and strengthened their lead in the series.
Scumper and Toggle have been away this weekend at the RS Vareo Nationals near Southampton. Congratulations to Scumper on his RS Vareo National Champion 2012 title, and Toggle for finishing a creditable 10th. Final report
Well done to Mark Ninnim/Emma Smith who finshed 3rd in the Enterprise Scottish Areas last weekend.
