Michael Bell 10R Memorial Trophy 2017

Michael Bell  10R Memorial Trophy 2017

It was an almost  breezeless  Saturday morning at Jackadder Lake when 7 enthusiastic sailors arrived for the much coveted Michael Bell 10R Trophy. Race PRO Warren Rock and his assistants were in no hurry to set a course in what swirling puffs drifted to and fro across and around the water.  It seemed there would be little chance of getting in the required number of races.  The main point of interest at that stage seemed to be in Phil Brown’s  stunning looking self built Graphito.

Racing finally got underway after a long delay following some light breeze from the north and Hub Bell with the borrowed Diamond showed his ability to pick the fickle breeze by putting 3 convincing wins out of the first four races on the board.   

After some course re adjustment to accommodate for a wind change Glenn Dawson with his Sanga and  the NRW of Rob Mews started to dust off the cobwebs (aka weed)  and put some very low scores and wins on the board.  Hub had incurred the wrath of the weed gods which dragged him back to the field.  Despite  the diamonds of Jeff Green, Roger Paul and Denton Roberts having some share of the podium places it became a shoot out by the Sanga and the NRW with Glen’s Sanga taking a well deserved 1st place after some severe weeding in early races. 

Thanks to PRO Warren Rock and assistants Chris Woods and Bob Paton for their efforts.
