Unfortunately it went out in a bit bit of a whimper ! The day before we had strong winds followed by freezing rain which was horrid and only the really keen turned up for the race and were met by millpond conditions. A race was held but the reduced field struggled to finish a lap and John the OOD finished the race on the water rather than at the Club line.
Overall David in his Laser won the Series (8 pts), Graham was second (9 pts) and Phil was third (10 pts) so it was very close indeed ! It was especially pleasing to see a number people stepping up from the training sessions, getting involved in the racing and getting the necessary number of races in to qualify for the Series with Richard E in 5th, Dominic in 6th (and 1st Junior), Chris S in 8th and Richard B in 11th.
Well done to everybody who sailed !
The next race is the first race of the 2019 season on New Years Day, along with the fuddle.
Come and sail, or do like most members come watch the race and socialise !
See you then !
