Laser sailors - Tues evening Race results week 8 Laser Ladies rule!!!!!
Laser Ladies rule!!!!!
We were delighted to see three new ladies join in our Tuesday even series this week, and what a result that they each obtained!!!!
Top of leader board for personal handicaps was Emma Hancox in her 4.7 rig who finished just 45seconds ahead of Anna Mason in her Radial. Debbie Degge showed her great boat handling and came in 5th. Well done ladies
Tonight’s wind and course was perfect and with 15boats hitting the start line, it made for one of the best evenings so far.
First off the line was Jeremy Higson who held a commanding lead for the first lap closely followed by son Ed and me. Throughout the fleet various battles took place and we even had a windward capsize (thanks Mike) right in front of the club house.
Once again the personal handicap system seems to be working with less than 3minutes splitting the fleet from 3rd to 14th, so remember every second counts on the water.
We have collected some money from sailors and the cumulative are shown in race 8. Basically if you sail 20 races you are contributing £10 into helping the prize fund for our end of season bash and hopefully there will be enough for some prizes for all those qualifying. i.e 50% of the races sailed plus 1
