The light wind that greeted the 11 skippers today gradually increased over the course of the day & ended up producing some good racing. John Moore's had some electrical gremlins which allowed Howard to overtake his early lead by midday. Due to the decent weather we managed 16 races in all, somewhat making up for yesterdays lack of action.
Kingsley's sailing continues to improve, managing to get up near the front for a few races, Lesley, Lance, Glenn & Angela all sailed well throughout the day, with Lesley putting in a late charge to climb the leader board almost to the top, but it was Howard's consistent scoring that saw him win by a clear margin in the end.
A very enjoyable day all in all.
The weekend, helped with the setting up & packing away, & to 'uncle Dave Marsham' for the scoring.
6 IOM's & 1 DF95 turned out on what was a disappointing day weather wise. Extremely light wind only allowed us 3 races before the rain set in & killed off what little wind there had been.
Brian took 2 of the 3 wins, but his 6th place in what proved to be the last race allowed John Wren to take the overall win by 2 points.
Sunday 6th May saw 10 skippers turn up for round 6 of the Club 500's
A bright and sunny day, racing from outside the club house, racing all boats in one heat.
There were was some great action with some new names at the top of the leaders list.
Congratulations to Glenn taking the win with Mick Amott, David Hazle, Doug Cracknell and Lesley Parks in close pursuit.
