Summer Series Sail No. 3 Friday 22nd September 2023 – Results
After postponing this week’s usual Thursday sail due to less than ideal weather, yesterday’s AM start saw 6 boats sign on, start and successfully finish the planned course, both within the maximum time allowance and within just over 10 minutes of each other, on what turned out to be another beautiful day with moderate SSE winds, mostly blue skies and mild temperatures during our time out on the water.
Jim, Tom and Eric on “Tantrum” had a great tussle with Anne and Pete on the second boat home, (Saltlik) for a large part of the race after starting just one minute behind them and managed to pip them at the post to be first boat across the line and take home the wine (…and do the time! :-). Congratulations guys on a great sail! Hamish and Greg on “Sequential” also showed their sailing skills by achieving the perfect start in the coveted Zero-Zero Stakes. Well done guys; a great effort! Just one boat that was just Itching to get away, jumped the start. But it was only by about half a Foot! Perhaps “they” should have been scratched. But it made no difference to the result and the skipper swears to try harder not to jump the start again, at least any time soon. Full results are attached.
Thank you again to Alastair, for helping out in the race box and presenting the results, Mark for opening the Bar and Jenny and Ange for organising the nibbles for the debrief. Much appreciated, as always!
Hoping to see you again next week.
