Spring Series (Day 3)

March 5, 2019

On a day when 3 out of a possible 4 rigs were used by everyone, the sailing was near to perfect.

C rigs were used at the beginning of the day with winds gusting above 20mph. Indications were evident from the off, as to the closeness of the racing to come; in the first 4 races no fewer than 6 of the 9 skippers present scored top 3 finishes. By the end of the day all but one had scored in the top 3, putting an end to the suggestion that there are 3 skippers at the top, and then 'the rest'.

With two races to go before lunch the wind had dropped enough for a change to B rigs, with Richard Whittle seizing both bullets in the larger rig.

 

Lunchtime. A 45min break was enjoyed by all, but to our dismay by the time skippers had returned to action the wind had all but disappeared. Even with a change to A rigs it was hard to get the boats to move. The patient were rewarded as the breeze gradually picked enabling a further 6 races to be sailed on a shortened course.

 

Although the usual suspects took the first 3 spots for the day, undoubtedly the rest of the fleet are making it harder for them by the week.

 

1st = Hugo Chandor (GBR 455)

1st = Richard Whittle (GBR 801)

3rd Graham Waugh (GBR 18)
