Race Report

Mother Nature has certainly been keeping it interesting for our Saturday racing this spring. For the third weekend in a row, the wind was gusting well over 20 knots. This time it was a 22 knot N/NE breeze that was blowing against an ebbing tide making upwinds and downwinds a challenge. Rumour has it that everyone but Ashley Deacon took a swim. Congratulations to the robust victors. The results were: Full Rigs: Ian Alexander (Championship Heat 5) and Luke Parker (Championship Heat 6); Radials: Sylvie Stannage (Championship Heat 5) and Matt Wenke (Championship Heat 6). Thanks to the many race volunteers who helped in the wild winds — Pat Levy (PRO) assisted by Jason Wilkins and Christine Linhart on the Jazzman, David Huber, Kevin Gilroy, Peter Collie and David Devlin on the RIBs, and Yves Stening and John Vasey in the canteen.
