From the start, most boats got away reasonably although the line was somewhat biased. By the first mark Mr Freeze had pulled out a reasonable lead followed by Mainiac (with Judy capably standing in a forward hand) and Pleasure & Pain. Italian Stallions, Wilful Intent and Spindrift were having a close race. Blowflies were a bit back - not sure what happened to them.
We all had some really great rides. Italian Stallions crossed the line first followed by Mr Freeze. Mainiac and Pleasure & Pain had a really close race until the reach to mark X where P&P managed to almost capsize. Wilful Intent were sailing really well until the last lap where things started to break (mast spanner, rudder box) - but they were determined to finish.
Club Championship results were Mr Freeze 1st, Mainiac 2nd and Blowflies 3rd on the long course and Italian Stallions 1st, Spindrift 2nd and Wilful Intent 3rd on the short course.
Pointscore results were Pleasure & Pain 1st, Italian Stallions 2nd and Mr Freeze 3rd. The progress results in the PS are very close with only 7 points between the first four.
This Saturday is the annual round the lake race - it would be really great to see everyone out on the water for this fun race before the Christmas break.
