Spring 2 and Wednesday series
The Wednesday evening series continued with Dan Skinner (RS300) leading Colin Carver (Lsr) and Barry Steel (RS Aero) home.
Spring 2 started on 26th April, with a notable Laser race win for Richard Holmes on the finish line from Colin Carver, which he believes is his first at the Club. The RS 300 Cup was held with some close racing at the front of the pack, requiring a third race to separate Duncan Jenkins, Dan Skinner and Barry Steel. Dan took the third race and the Cup.
Racing was followed by a Club afternoon personal handicap race, also won by Dan Skinner, followed by Colin Wright and Andras Szabo. Thanks to Colin Carver for organising, assisted by Tony Gold and Mike Wilcock. Here's a brief summary of events from Colin:
"Six boats, Dan overtook all to have an easy win. Andras sailed Ralph's RS Aero and had a fight with Colin (Wright) to the finish with Colin just getting into the breeze to pip Andras on the line. Les infringed while trying to pass Hilgard and the resulting 720 deg penalty allowed Hilgard to sail away to take 4th place".
