Spring Series (Day 5) The perfect reunion

April 23, 2017




After three weeks away from the lake, with dinghy racing taking priority at the sailing club, the RC Laser skippers were welcomed back with perfect Spring weather. The day began with A rigs but as the winds freshened and changed direction the B rig became the order of the day.

Perhaps the best racing of the season so far was experienced by all today. The close racing of recent weeks was displayed yet again as 6 skippers were usually separated by less than a couple of boat lengths right up to the final leeward mark.

No fewer than 4 skippers enjoyed 1st places with Hugo Chandor (GBR 455) eventually taking the overall lead from Darren Mussell in 2nd with his shiny new (GBR 1106) and Richard Whittle (GBR 801) in third.

If there was a prize for the most improved skipper it would undoubtedly have gone to Peter Hilton who found remarkable boat speed and took a series of good placings to include two 1st places.
