With a cool Northerly blowing down the lake this was always going to be a quiet day for the Radio Marbleheads , and with Martin otherwise disposed it gave the chasing pack a chance to come good , Only three R.M’s came to the line with a further five International One Metres , the breeze was steady and top suit was held by the I.O.M quite easily . The first race was won by Bob Geary 13 but a broken sheet just before the second race started ended his dream there and then , Colin Marsden 75 went on to win the next two races , but then race 4 and 5 had Bob back on top , the final race was won by Colin and with it the days spoils, Ivan Stevenson managed a second in race 2 and 5 and was not on top form for the day , If Bob’s sheet had not parted in race two it would have been a different story, there is a lesson there and Bob needs no telling ,,,, make sure you don’t have any breakages . Results below and on count back Colin with three firsts gets the nod sorry could not correct the sheet .
After a swift lunch break out came the Dragons only 8 I am afraid to say , I think the weather may have something to do with it. A massive downpour had a couple of competitors rushing for cover ( car ) and missing two races and the next to race was sailed in about 1/2 knots of wind , by the time it finished there was not a breath of wind and race 8 was not sailed ,, results below , and every body was keen to get away and have a hot bath after the soaking we had in race 5 Well done to Ivan and Jenny 3/4 respectively you both sailed some very good races,, a tip for Chaz,, pop along to Morton boats to get some new waterproof ‘s ,,, one with a zip would be nice . and for all those guy’s who have to wear glasses just GOOGLE aquavis they are about £ 10.00 a set but it stops your glasses getting wet !!!!
