ROUND ONE

The 2018 Spring Splash got under way on a sunny spring day with a good SSW breeze blowing across the pond.

A course was set from between buoys 5 and 6 across the far side of the pond to buoy 3, then to number 8 and returning to 6 and 5 (are you paying attention Phil?)

The finish after two laps was from 5 to the usual buoy 8 finish line.

The first race had to be scrapped due to a complete mix up over the course, and several incorrect directions given which was unfortunate, especially for Dave who had won it comfortably.

The restart saw Brian once again showing his dominance by winning races 1, 2,4 and 6 thereby winning the round. Dave secured 2nd place by winning race 3 and finishing second in races 2 and 5. Phil came in third with Paul fourth after a terrible start to the day. Unfortunately George did not start in races 4, 5 and 6 due to negotiating the sale of his old boat which hopefully might be joining in with us soon with its new skipper.

All in all we had a good day’s sailing with several penalty turns for almost everyone, lots of confused hails and a few missed buoys.

Dave Johnston certainly seems to be back on form and may well be challenging Mr Hartley for his title.
