A Slow End to the 2019 Club Champs

Andrew Cox

It was a very difficult day for the final Club Championship races for the season.  A very light, temperamental south easterly breeze was there for the start and fluctuated between almost calm and maybe the occasional 8kt gust.  It also shifted horribly, even moving almost to the northeast at the end of the second race.  It was a day that separated the good from the lucky (or in this case unlucky).  As usual, the best sailors seemed to find a way to do well regardless of the conditions.  For the rest of us, it was downright confusing!  Brett Beyer summed it up at the debrief with three simple words: "DON'T GO RIGHT".  And the GPS tracks of BBSP participants showed it all.  Ugly!

The Club Championships were set with a tightly contested field in both fleets -- the winners will be announced at the AGP, so hold your breath and watch this space.  Thanks to PRO, Jonathan Stone, assisted by Clare Alexander, for managing a difficult day of course setting!  And thanks to the rest of the on-water team of Mark Crowhurst, Justin Davey, David Devlin, and several visitors!
