Tuesday 95's


Tuesday 95's

It was a good afternoons racing with only a couple of showers.  We managed 12 races over an interesting course.  Initially due to the mainly N’ly wind the first few races were a bit of a soldiers so after a suggestion from Barry Glazier we put in what would have been a wing mark had we had a true beat.  This made for a much better course in that we had to beat to this new wing mark from the leeward buoy then run back down to the leeward mark and then back up to this wing mark.  Then up to what was the windward mark then down to the leeward buoy up to the wing mark then finish.  It sounds a bit complicated, but we all seemed to sail the same course.  Good job we had coloured buoys.

Although when you look at the results Ron Viney with 9 wins out of the 12 races one could be forgiven in thinking he may have missed a few buoys out.  Be assured, those who know Ron know what a great sailor he is and a truly nice bloke. Welcome back Ron and great sailing.  In second place and in his own words “always the bridesmaid” was Barry Glazier who had 2 wins and 8, yes 8 2nds again very well done Barry.  In 3rd place was yours truly who didn’t even get an invite to the wedding and one 2nd place and 6 3rds….must go to 'Spec Savers’ after hooking up on the start buoy and missing the leeward buoy by a mile plus a few more unmentionables.
Rob Bovell was a bit off the pace today but did get a good win in race 9.  Well done Rob.
Graham O’Hehir is sailing faster each outing, the results do not show how close most of the finishes were for the minor placings. 


We were very lucky with the rain as it absolutely bucketed down on the way home …thank you Zeus, Freyr, Bunbulama and any other rain gods I might have missed out.
