Spring Series (Day 6)

Yet another tremenedous day for the 8 skippers present.

Strong winds, warranting a pre-race change from C to D rigs, remained constant throughout the day with mild gusts. It was a rarity to hear any skippers complaint about 'sailing into a hole' or an anguished cry that their boat was 'submarining'.

A good course was set, with less distance between the marks ensuring that full 'triangles and sausages' were possible in all races. 

 

12 races were sailed with results proving to be increasingly competitive for all. 7 skippers, out of the 8 on the water, had at least 1 top 3 finishe, with 6 of them scoring 3 top three finishes or more.

The day probably boasted more 'photo finishes' on the water than ever before, as the fleet continues to improve from top to bottom.
