RACING 23 JUN 2018

Avast me hearties!! A Stern Chaser!! We knew that it was a stern chaser day because David Martin was only there long enough to do some admin and then shot through before racing started.

.

At the end of race nine it was anybody's day. Remember, there are no discards on stern chaser day so that the positions cannot easily be manipulated.

Congratulations to Bob Watson for first place. The countback on second places did it.

.

As Geoff Smith correctly pointed out, $50 is not enough to get me to fiddle the scores. Just ask Bob.

.

It also took the countback on second places for John Lykke to take third place from Bob Tuohy.

.

Graham Alcock was nobbled by having to leave early otherwise he would have been in there fighting for 3rd/4th place.

.

Rogert Hartley recovered well from missing the first three races. He has certainly got his Marblehead moving a lot better after putting it on a diet. After winning race eight he was knocked back two divisions = one minute. He then won race nine and again was knocked back two divisions = one minute. He then still managed a third in race ten.

.

It's a pity that Bob Dare had to leave early. He was starting out fairly well.

.

We fiddled and we faddled and finally got Roy's Monsoon moving. We just have to get a decent boom vang working on it an she should be a goer.

All in all, a good day's sailing. Five minutes after we stopped racing the water turned to glass. You can be lucky somrtimes.
