Points - Saturday 15th of September

posted 18 Sep 2018, 15:23 by Perth Sailing Club

               There was such was the contrast in conditions between last Sundays racing where the wild conditions challenged all those that took part and the race on Saturday 15th where there was so little wind that there was a debate as to whether it was worth the effort. In the event five club members took to the water to race or at least improve their boat handling skills in light conditions. Hunter Williamson, Race Officer set a “simple sausage” course.  Bob Watson (Enterprise) took an early lead helped by a strong incoming time but was soon overhauled at the top mark by Andrew Porteous (Solo) and Euan McDonald (RS Aero7) . James Curley (Laser) was also very close to the leading boats and these three broke away to head to the downwind mark leaving Alan Jones (Solo) to join Bob at the top mark. Round two was led by Andrew Porteous , Euan McDonald and James Curley who all managed to lap both Bob and Alan during round three. At the line it was Andrew Porteous , Euan McDonald and James Curley in third. Bob Watson and Alan Jones finishing on average lap times. Bob’s mainsheet came adrift as he rounded the bottom mark on his last lap and both Bob and Alan finished on average times. Race two was cancelled due to the lack of wind and fading light.
