Autumn Series (Day 8) Waugh rules the day

November 4, 2018

With Christmas less than 8 weeks weeks away it was hard to imagine a more pleasant sailing day. Mild weather (A rigs all the way) and occasional bursts of sunshine made a superb setting for the contest. 


Graham Waugh, who returned to sweep the board with 10 wins from12 after a prolonged absence two weeks ago, today arrived with similar intent. Taking 5 wins, together with top 3 finishes in all races except one was good enough to claim yet another overall 1st place. Superb reading of difficult wind discrepancies set him apart from the rest of the fleet.


Hugo Chandor and Richard Whittle and secured the 2nd and 3rd place spots. 


Lunchtime proved to be extremely productive, (besides having the opportunity to recharge our batteries). The chance was taken to bring clarity to the application of the rule book. It was agreed that this may happen more frequently as all skippers gradually bring more precision to their game.


Don't miss next Sunday, when once again Burwain RC Lasers play host to the Northern Area Championships. Points will count towards the Autumn Series.
