Once again we only had a small fleet turn up for the Club Championship - I know there were some sailors at the TY regatta but we need to start discussing how to get more boats on the water. The courses we sail have once again been raised with some sailors wanting changes. What can we do to make things more interesting ?
The actual racing was good with The Ribwich and Space Monkeys crossing tacks up the first work and Pleasure & Pain and Mainiac also very close behind. Dylan in F11 1321 is really starting to sail the F11 well - but maybe its time to give it a name guys ?
The Ribwich managed to get a bit of a lead over Space Monkeys on the downwind legs and Mainiac got through on Pleasure & Pain. Over the next laps the fleet got really close with The Ribwich still holding on to a small lead.
The run to mark X had The Ribwich just holding on round the last mark from Space Monkeys. Mainiac made up most of what they lost after a bad work and were just behind Pleasure & Pain. Only a couple of minutes covered all five boats across the line.
CC results were The Ribwich first, Space Monkeys second and Pleasure & Pain third. Pointscore results were Pleasure & Pain first, The Ribwich second and 1321 third.
Sharpie sailors please note the Balmoral states heats are now on March 21/22
