This was a lovely day making a mockery of the series name as it saw people in shorts and t-shirt! We arrived to a flat calm and it looked as though sailing might not be possible but the wind picked up as the day went on turning it into another perfect day.
Three boats took part in the first race with Alan winning, Anne 2nd and Ray 3rd. In the second race we were joined by Richard. Anne won it with Alan 2nd, Ray 3rd and Richard 4th. We were also joined on the water by Barbara giving a first sailing lesson to her two granddaughters.
Meg (pictured) was the day's assistant duty officer. She can be seen here chasing off the frogs so they didn't get squashed when we put the boats on the water.
As mentioned, this was the last day of the hypo series. It has been a very succesful series with around 15 people taking part and at least five doing enough races to qualify.
Yesterday was a perfect day for sailing with a steady but gentle breeze and consistent sunshine. There were not many sailors but we managed two races with Alan winning both and Steve H second in both. The new safety boat spent both races safely moored to the jetty.
This was our first proper weekend of Saturday sailing and the first weekend with three races on a Sunday. I believe it was also the first time that Jason beat Peter (although apparently only by three tenths of a second!) This was in Saturday afternoon's race.
Dan was joined by Anna as his assistant for Sunday's duty - possibly giving her Mother the present of having the house to herself?
Ray made a late entrance to the first race gaining himself a 4th place behind Tony, Peter and Alan.
The second race was also won by Tony with Peter 2nd, Alan 3rd, Anne 4th and Richard 5th (on his second sail of the season). Gary joined us to potter around.
Tony packed away before the third race leaving Peter to win it with Alan 2nd, Anne 3rd and Richard 4th. This one was a much closer race with Richard almost making it to the front at one point.
