Well what a great day and how close was the racing.

The day started off with a fleet of 8 Yachts, a good South Easterly with some really good wind gusts.

Midday the breeze changed direction considerably, but after some deliberation, it was decided to keep on sailing the original course as it was thought that the breeze would eventually swing back, and guess what?

In the afternoon, everyone had to contend with another problem, WEED. Doesn’t matter how well you set-up your boat, a little weed brings you to a stop, even an A Class.

\images\qlda2John Heard was our first and only casualty for the day having to pull out with winch failure after the first race, it was certainly a loss of one of our top skippers.

As said previously, it was close racing and this is depicted by the Score Sheet.

Congratulations to Garry Taylor, first on 23 points, followed by Les Flood on 25 points, then Jason Nasmith on 26 points.

Congratulations to all the other skippers, some surprised themselves, hey Brian.

A big thank you to John Fulton, our OOD for the day, David Black for the Scoring, and all the other Club Members for without their help we could not have run the event.
