I suppose I had better catch up on my homework.

.

This was our last stern chaser of the year. If I recall rightly, the wind was light and dropped out causing a cancellation of races after Race 7.

.

David 'You can't beat the handicapper' Martin was going to pull out after Race 6 but decided to go for one more. David was ahead at the end of Race 6. If Grant Murray had won Race 7, he would have won the day on count-back. Congratulations, however, to David on his win.

.

Well done also to Grant Murray on a well-fought second place.

.

Brian Pennifold kept the A Class flag flying with a close third place.

.

John Lykke was just pipped by Brian. So close.

.

Bob Dare put in a good day with his Marblehead and wasn't that far back from the leaders.

.

Then came the peleton.

.

Geoff Smith led the peloton on count-back.

.

Graham Alcock was placed second in the peloton.

,

Bob ##$@?!!! Watson should have sailed at least one more race and he would have beaten the peloton.

.

Bob Tuohy tailed up the peloton.

.

David Draper sailed the safety boat.

.

Good fun. Funny to spectate.
