A Waiting Game for Winter Champs

With the showers passing and a decent NNE breeze, a fleet of 26 boats prepared for heats 4-6 of the Winter Championships last Sunday. However, soon after the radial start, the wind began to shift 90 degrees to the west, and then abruptly faded.  The race was abandoned and the fleet waited for the new westerly to build. After a 45-minute delay, the racing began again with a decent breeze and good competition. Congratulations to the winners: Standards: Luke Parker (races 4 and 6), Jules Hall (race 5); Radials:  Daniel Costandi (race 4), Mark Louis (race 5), Sylvie Stannage (race 6).A special thanks to the race officers who were forced to reset the course many times. PRO Michael Osborne, and COTD Christine and Tim Patton were aided by Bret Beyer, Ian Saunders, and Tristan Brown in moving the marks as the fickle breeze continued to swing. Thanks also to our cheery COVID Compliance Officer,
