Racing update

Sunday 28th November: The gales of Storm Arwen had blown away, and the day started with clear blue sky, attracting quite a few members out for the two resumed winter series. The wind was initially F2-3, northwesterly, and bitingly cold, but continued to decline, with some dead patches appearing during the afternoon race.

Thalya won the morning race, and now leads the series, followed by Giles and Mike W. Giles was also second in today's race, and Carol third. Mike W won the afternoon race, and has taken over the series lead, with Giles and Thalya following; second place today went to Steve M, and third to John L.

Three more Sundays to go in the two winter series, with the final races on the 19th Decenber.

Club Championship

The championship page currently shows the position at the end of the autumn series. At this point, Mike Wardale is leading the overall championship and the slow fleet, while Greg has gone ahead of Steve Marshall in the fast fleet. The next update will come after the completion of the winter series.
