Huge Turnout Continues for Winter Champs

The third instalment of the Winter Championships was held last Sunday. Despite a cold and wet morning, 30 sailors braved the conditions to compete. A storm swept through while rigging to wake up the fleet. In a repeat of last week, a course was set for a light S/SW breeze, then wind shifted to W/NW so racing was delayed and the course had to be moved. By the second race, the breeze swung to the North. Despite the difficult, shifty conditions there was very efficient race management and course setting by our race team. A big thanks to PRO Luke Parker, COTD Alistair Sutherland, and CCO James Johnson. Congratulations to the winners: Standards: Mark Louis (races 7 and 9), Rod Barnes (race 8); Radials: Daniel Costandi (race 7 and 9), and Mina Ferguson (race 8). A symmetry of 1sts!Here’s hoping there’s no rain and a steady breeze this Sunday for heats 10-12 of the Winter Championships.
