What a rollercoaster the weather has been recently.
It was good to see the warm sun again and a fresh breeze, strengthening through the day.
The good weather has started to bring out some of our ‘lesser seen’ members so hopefully with the clocks changing this weekend, the numbers will start to increase at the water again.
David popped in the set up his “Footy” for the weekend event and he stayed on to help observing and scoring the IOM event, Thank you David.
Bob also popped in, and hopes to join us in the every near future, to get some metres sailed with his “Rubix” IOM.
And Mark and Karen, visited again this week, with their latest acquisition, a Trevor Bramforth “Panther” IOM, as he wants to join in the fun we all seem to be having.
Course set – check !, Score sheet ready – check !, Starter ready – check !, Boats on the water – check !
8 IOMs took to the water for the last of the Winter Series and some good, reasonably clean racing started with several skippers taking a 1st through the 12 races of the day.
Results for the last event were
1st – Kevin – 18pts
2nd – Paul B – 23pts
3rd – John T – 23pts
4th – Cliff – 26pts
5th – Roger P – 28pts
6th – Gordon
7th – Steve
8th – Garry
So the final positions for the “Winter ” series,
with the addition of the 2 events in March and 2 cancelations due to weather 6 events were sailable and only 4 were needed to count for the series.
Unfortunately, Cliff, Rodney and Ben did not make the 4 sailed days but 8 did – thank you for the support through the poor weather and all are improving their ability in a competitive environment.
Things are certainly looking good for the “Summer” calendar.
1st – John T – 6pts
2nd – Kevin – 7pts
3rd – Roger P – 13pts
4th – Paul B – 15pts
5th – Steve – 18pts
6th – Gordon – 18pts
7th – Barry – 23pts
8th – Garry – 32pts
Well done John T, you have earned the ‘3 foot length of rope’ handicap for the “Summer” series.
If you have not had your say on the “Summer ” calendar, there is still time so please get in touch.
Also dust off your “Small” yachts, for the mid week or weekend events.
And if its “Social” sailing then any event is open to you, there is plenty of space for everyone.
Finally, please spread the word that “Radio Sailing” is happening at CMYC and new members and guests are welcome.
See you next week.
