A wild windy afternoon was more than a challenge for the 30 sailors who braved the tough conditions for Autumn Pointscore heats 13 and 14. The wind fluctuated wildly both in speed and direction going from 13 knots to over 30 knots in a matter of seconds. Several times more than half the fleet seemed to be capsized when a bullet shot out of the West. In a testament to the harsh conditions only 18 boats completed the second race. Congratulations to the hardy competitors who came out on top after handicapping: Full Rigs: Ian Alexander (heat 13), and Nick Pellow (heat 14); Radials: Daniel Costandi (heat 13), and Richard George (heat 14). Thanks also to the race committee for braving the wind and putting on a well-run race day filled with several rescues: PRO Steve Wawn assisted by Clare Alexander, COTD David Shannon, CoCOTD Hans Beacker, and Canteen Assistant David Newman. Thanks also for the additional assistance from Julian Van Aalst and Jim Dounis.
