Friday Twilight Pursuit Series #2 - Race 2
We were again faced with some difficult conditions for our Friday Twilight sail. The race was postponed to allow the worst of the inclement weather to pass. We had 18 starters with 8 having a female at the helm. Although we had a number of retirements almost half the fleet carried on but unfortunatley with the later start time and and no wind for the better part of the first leg out the 25 sunset beat most of the boats to the finish line.
We did however, have a very happy Peter Morrison on Fransiska which managed to squeak home before the time limit expired. We must be due for some decent sailing conditions soon - fingers crossed!
Female Helm - Series Scores
|1st||Summer Breeze||Piety Coad|
Well done all those that competed last night. Unfortunately this series has also been plagued by challenging conditions. This was the final race in the series so the final scores have been published to the club website at Female Helm Series Scores. It was a very close series with Piety Coad on Summer Breeze in first position which was determined on a count back from Sue Turnbull on Anthea with both boats scoring 11 points Diane Ashcroft came in 3rd spot with 12 points.
Big thanks to Race Office Des Carroll and the team from Joint Venture who had a pretty stressful time in the tower.
