13 intrepid Flying Fifteens set off in the wet but unfortunately not wild conditions. After moving the Bates four times the OD decided that it was now or never and the postponement flag was dropped.
Yet again Ian/Lezli-Ann were over the line and the rest of the fleet whizzed off-ha ha!! Roy/Alan made good pace up the first leg, only to be the tail ender by the first mark. A wind shift at the death denied Graham/Sally the prestige of winning the windward mark and the word drifter subsequently sprang to mind. Perseverance was definitely the order of the day with only one boat retiring.
Dave McKee-F15 GBR was the lucky winner with Simon and a desperate Jon (don’t ask) gaining second and John x2 finishing third.
The OD then took pity and decided enough was enough and racing was abandoned for the day.
Guess what – the wind doesn’t look much better for tomorrow!!
