|A total of SIX rounds will be sailed, with SIX races being sailed EACH week, best FOUR rounds to count. The same yacht must be sailed in each round, unless mechanical problems cannot be repaired at the lakeside.|
Seven skippers turned up on a beautiful Tuesday morning with hardly much breeze to choose a course from, and as the day progressed so did the weather, with the breeze being variable throughout the six races.
A select number of buoys were placed to form a triangular course, starting from Mark 1 and a marker cone on the jetty, we headed to Mark 6, then up and across to Mark 4 at Brant's, heading to Mark 1 for two laps. Very close sailing throughout the day even when the leader had a considerable lead the rest of the fleet did have times to catch up as and when the wind directions changed.
Good start for the series by Dave Johnston, Roger Monks and Brian Hartley getting the top 3 positions on the points table.
Unfortunately due to sailwinch problems Tony was unable to sail with his usual boat, but with thanks to Geoff he let Tony borrow his boat for the day. There weren't many incidents on the water apart from a couple of buoys being missed in a couple of the races, and with uncertain breezes, some of the finishing places were very closely tied. Thanks to our new member Adrian for writing down the score positions for the day and would like to welcome him to the section.
Seven skippers turned out on a beautiful Tuesday morning, greeted by the sun and very little breeze. A course was picked following the figure of 8 style by starting between Mark 1 and the cone on the Jetty, leading across and up to Mark 6, down to Mark 7, back across and up the lake to Mark 2, down to Mark 1 for two laps however due to wind conditions this was reduced to one lap finishing from Mark 1 to Mark 8 and the Lectern.
There weren't many incidents occurring on the water apart from the odd bump from 56 and a couple of buoys missed and with uncertain wind conditions it brought again some rather close finishing positions and a mix of leaders throughout the course.ROUND FIVE
Six skippers turned up for a fairly good days sailing, the sun was out and a slight breeze across the lake, although finding a course to sail was difficult. It was decided to sail a triangular course starting from between Mark 6 and Mark7, heading across the lake to Mark 3, heading almost 180° to head back to Mark 5 then down to Mark 7 for two laps, finishing from Mark 7 to Mark 8 and the Lectern.
Another week of not many incidents and only a couple of buoys missed, very close sailing and finishing positions were close.ROUND SIX
A dull grey day but quite warm, still and
flukey East South East wind around 7mph!
this was still frustrating racing with
