Heats 3/4 pointscore....where was Grasshopper 2.0?

A lovely 10-12 knot easterly greeted the fleet on Saturday 19th

Points of  note:

  • 8 full rigs OCS'ed.
  • Two boats were OCS'ed in both races
  • no radials were OCS'ed
  • in the full rigs, in each race there was a tie on corrected time in the first 3 places.  

Thanks to Team Alexander for PRO'ing.

However, one questioned permeated the fleet: where was Grasshopper 2.0?

Rumours abounded; was he changing class; was he  co-op'ted by Dear Leader to help Malcolm and Lucy move;  did he stay at home to do a couple of more problem sets; etcetera.

The answer was he was temporaliy changing class for a charity race on Sunday.  So what was he doing on Saturday?  Media training....see about 30 seconds into this clip:

NOTE: with the influx of new members and new boats for old members, please make the Handicapper's and the on-water officials easier as possible by ensuring sail numbers match boat numbers, and both are the same as on the sign-on sheet.

Heats 5 and 6 this week. Long range weather forecasts suggests it could be Groundhog Day.
