Race 9 of the Morse Air Systems Midweek Mariners Series II was held in steady south-westerly breezes. Pursuit course 6 was run. There were lots of OCS boats, all of which returned, except for Mrs Overnewton.
After some shuffling of the results when the top four boats claimed the finishing order was wrong the scores were as follows:
Seaya took out the pursuit race, Matador won on AMS and Charlotte took out the half ton challenge.
The Mountain Goat of the Day went to Obsession for being slow learners and managing to be scored OCS two weeks running. At least they came back this week, so they didn’t get the scoring penalty.
Don’t forget that series III of the Midweek Mariners will have two divisions. The non-spinnaker will be sponsored by Morse Air Systems and the spinnaker will be sponsored by Doctors of Northcote.
If you are planning on entering the spinnaker series, please do so this week. If you enter the spinnaker series you will be removed from the non-spinnaker series.

Race 5 of the Club Marine Winter Series was a slow race, to say the least. Held in 3-4 knots from the south, the course was eventually shortened after one lap.
Division 1 results saw Remedy (pictured above, in fresher conditions) win on AMS and PHS, while How Bizarre claimed IRC.
Division 2 once again had a clean sweep on all three handicaps by Salamander III.
