Garry Foley and his buddy, excelled with a great course in the light, shifty 5-8 knot SSE breeze, Conditions were sunny and cool - ideal conditions for the mixed fleet of 11 yachts!! Wonderful to see Rob Douglass back sailing and training with us for the last two races. Mike Robbins sailed his Alpha Omega catamaran once again, and two spirals from Nowra Sailing club also joined in. Geoff Carne sailed another of his International Canoes which really flew when it was upright (!!), especially on the reaches.
For the club members, the Championship race was won by Rob Douglass (Laser) from Nev Lotze (Impulse) and Merv Lotze (Spiral). Dave Ginty (Spiral) finished 4th, and Geoff Carne (IC) was 5th after yardsticks were applied. Rob Douglass (Laser) and Merv Lotze (Spiral) won the two Sprints, with Nev Lotze (Impulse) second in all three races. Mike Robbins had a win, a second and a third for line honours in the races - well done Mike!
The Overall Pointscore leader is Damien & Jacob Bates (Contender) from Richard Pryor (Spiral) and Dave Braidwood. All three are in contention with one final race to go.
Preliminary Overall Championship place getters for the season are Merv Lotze, Nev Lotze and Richard Pryor.
Preliminary Sprints place getters for the season are likewise, Merv Lotze, Nev Lotze and Richard Pryor.
The next Race on 25 May is a Pointscore event, with Dave Braidwood on duty. Expect to see Richard Pryor and Damien Bates match racing and covering as they do battle for the end of year results hanging on the last race. A bit of ad hoc coaching from Rob Douglass, and a hint to ease the vang right off on the Spiral in light winds, produced a blistering surge of speed for Richard. There will be as BBQ after the race to celebrate the end of the season. Please bring your own food and drinks. Cheers!!.
