A rainy, gusty, shifty Southerly presented itself to a fleet of nearly 50 boats last Saturday for Club Championship heats 11 & 12 and Autumn Pointscore heats 5 & 6. With massive shifts, you had to continually be monitoring the wind to come out a winner.
The results were: Championship– Standards: David Newman (Championship Heat 11) and Marty Trembath (Championship Heat 12); Radials: Campbell Patton (Championship Heats 11 & 12); 4.7s: Ian Louis (Championship Heats 11 & 12). Pointscore(after handicap): Standards: Thomas Beregi (Pointscore Heat 5) and Rod Barnes (Pointscore Heat 6); Radial / 4.7s: Ashton Scott (Pointscore Heat 5) and Emily Ball (Pointscore Heat 6). Thanks to this week’s race volunteers — Jonathan Stone (PRO) and Clare Alexander on the Jazzman, Michael Osborne and Christine Linharton the RIBs, and Alistair Sutherland in the canteen.
After racing we enjoyed a beautiful BBQ at the club thanks to the Canteen Crew and Pat and Peter on the grill!
