Summer Sunday Handicap series 2011 - 16 races, 9 to count if all sailable.

 Summer series Handicap races 3&4

More controversy at the finish of this race! After the morning's exciting finish for the middle bunch, the first race this afternoon was set to be two and a half rounds of quite a long course. In the event with too little wind, Ernie as race office relented and shortened course, hailing the leading boat (Steve Sharp) to that effect. At the time they were sailing close to the south shore. Steve interpreted this as meaning he should sail inside #0 rather than rounding it to port and reverse-rounding #9 thence to the line. Second boat - watching how Steve finished (and got a hoot) followed suit. Most of the following bunch did likewise and got finishing hoots, but Mike Mooney and Les Green in the other Osprey thought to challenge the rest of the fleet for not finishing correctly by doing that which Ernie had originally intended (out of sheer devilment!). Fun and games in the club room as we watched this being played out on the water and imagined what the intention and outcome might be. Mike M was seen to be sailing backwards (in no wind) at one point.


Once ashore, all was resolved amicably and Mike and Les were given redress in their elapsed time calculations. Another second place today to Paul in his Firefly! with Stuart winning on handicap having sailed another canny race.


It was to be three in a row for Stuart! After the threats to the Race Officer, Ernie opted for a bullet proof, simple course with lots of rounds that could be shortened without any problems. On being informed that none of us had navigation lights, the course was reduced before we went afloat from 10 rounds to 4. No mistakes, but Stuart again showed the way, consistently sailing between the shallows and the island on the way to #8 whereas the rest of the fleet opted for south side of the shallows. Yours truly overshot on at least one of these, resulting in a broader, inefficient approach to #8.


The wind held up reasonably this race and there were fewer encounters with weed (or was my crew just very vigilant?).


Streakers were well favoured in these conditions and put in a good showing in results.

Sunday Handicap 26-6-11

Phew what an even hotter scorcher of an afternoon!

Len Fisher arrived to OD today, Diane being locked into the intricacies of Chief Examining “”levels – criminal on a day like today! I hoe she gets very well paid for her troubles and expertise! A relatively simple course was set, bearing in mind the week around #7 – we really should find a way of harvesting and using it - I'm sure it would make a great field dressing! A reach start took us to #8 as first mark, thence to #2 – on a beat, followed by #9, #1 and #0 to start next round. Sheila had arrived on cue by bike – somewhat be-flied and hot and opted for shorts and tee shirt – a first for this year! I'd brought Tobias down this morning – he'd be spending the whole day getting ore confident with his RS Feva and by the end of the day he was both very pleased with his progress and somewhat sunburned!

Chris Bell with Rob Froud got off to a cracking start, as did Pip. The rest of the fleet were bunched close behind  with three Streakers and the Swordfish vying for position at the first mark. Careful use of shifts on what was a good beat to #2 paid off handsomely but required some quick roll tacks to make best use of them as some shifts lasted only a minute or so, though these produce a couple of boat lengths advantage if used well.

Stuart fought through to the front of the Streakers, but he was pressed hard by Tony and Brian and it was very close in the finish. On corrected time, over an hour's race, just 1 minute separated the first 5 boats – great racing!

Second race was a re-run with same course and same number of rounds – four. The race started with more breeze, which largely held through the whole race resulting in it being completed in a shade over 50 minutes – that's almost 10 minutes or 17% shorter. One or two sizzling planes were to be had if you were lucky enough to get the gusts on the reaches.

All in all a lovely day to out on the Mere and loads of other boats and visitors in evidence. Ice cream sales in the cafe hit a high no doubt!
