Results for the Last Club race of the 2018/19 season, a Pointscore held on 13 October, are now shown.
Merv Lotze set a great course in very difficult conditions with the wind shifting from SSE to E during the event. Winds were about 7-9 knots gusting to 15 knots with lots of shifts. Damien Bates & son, sailing a Corsair (Disorient Express), were the 'bunny' starting off 24 minutes. They sailed magnificently holding off all challengers, nipping at their heels, to the finish, winning by 2 minutes from John Anderson (Laser3, Hunter 216), and Sam Lay (Hansa Tri) in Third Place. Dave Braidwood and Richard Pryor (Spirals) were a further 2 minutes behind, finishing in 4th and 5th place. The shifting breeze considerably disadvantaged Greg Thornton, sailing a Laser Radial, who was last to start off 11 minutes, and finished in 5th place, 9 minutes behind the rabbit. An unofficial sprint race (2 snags) was held after the Pointscore, with a scratch start to revel in the lovely conditions. Greg Thornton got his own back winning comfortably by 3 minutes from John, Dave & Richard. The adjustments to the handicaps will provide even closer racing next time with Sam Lay (Hansa Tri), the rabbit, off 24 Minutes; Richard Pryor the bunny, off 23 minutes, and John, Dave & Damien all together off at 22 minutes.
The Pointscore race was won by Damien Bates (Corsair), with John Anderson (Hunter 216) second, Sam Lay (Hansa Tri) third, Dave Braidwood (Spiral) fourth and Richard Pryor (Spiral) fifth.
