ROUND FIVE

Another pleasant dry day at the lake with a North West wind that sometimes gusted which picked up as the day progressed.  Eight yachts one the water at the start of the session.  Roger Monks only managed two races, Brian Joyce was forced to retire after race four because of a mechanical problem, as for the yacht captain he should have retired at the beginning and kept out of the way, as he had a disastrous day, but that is not unusual for him.

Some close racing with Roger Crates dominating the wins, Paul Vale had a couple of wins , Tim Gregg and Stuart Axon also had wins.  George Younger recently back from a world cruise didn't have any wins, but he did manage a couple of second places, he tried to blame it on "Jet Lag" but I suspect it was the effects of the Saki wearing off as it flows freely on Saga Cruise Liners.

Our session on the water was marred by a scale electric model boat being inconsiderately raced around the lake at considerable speed during a despite the sailing course being posted on the board near the harbour area and the podium. Other regular scale members observe the notifications and events co-exist harmoniously with both factions observing their boundaries.

Long may the good weather continue.
