Wednesday 20 July
Race 7 of the Midweek Mariners Series surprised nearly everyone last Wednesday when the glassy bay gave way to a 5-7 knot southwesterly – just in time to get the Race Management volunteers scurrying out to the Tower and the Sailing Coordinator photocopying start sheets!
It stayed in long enough for a short race, and in the Morse Air Systems Pursuit race, congratulations go to Andrew English and the crew of Laafin, followed by Obsession and then Revenge.
The prizes for Best Start and the Tonners went to Richard O’Beirne and Revenge.
Thanks very much to Ian Guyett, Selwyn Stokes and John Taylor for volunteering their services in the tower.
Saturday 23 July
Saturday’s race was abandoned AGAIN! Not much to report…
Thank you to race volunteers Amanda Wakeham, Terry Parker and Andrew Fambiatos – they set out for the tower planning to run a race and then nearly got blown off the pier!
Sunday 24 July
No one came to play for the Winter Two Handed Series.
The Classics also raced at RMYS on Sunday. See the separate article for a fantastic report from Peter Costolloe.
Thank you to RO Alistair Hart, with Selwyn Stokes, Terry Parker and Louise Kavanagh in the Tower; Dave Croke and Andrew Gluth on William Paterson as chase/rescue boat; and also a big thanks to Dave Leroy and his team on Thorsen for assisting with keeping a watchful eye on the fleet.
