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: https://www.facebook.com/bartsbash/videos/458998994302323/
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.
