St Ives Sailing Club Report 31st May 2017

Wednesday evening was near perfect for sailing. Force 2-3 and a flat sea. Richard Sadler with the aid of Safety Boat crew Dave Peter and Paul Gumbleton laid a Port B course. Jon Keast and Tim Lukes (RS 400) took the lead and held it to the finish line. Dean Silcock did well sailing with the small sail of the club Pico.

Results: 1st Jon Keast, 2nd Mike Cook, 3rd Dean Silcock.

Each Saturday for the past few weeks has brought winds of force 4-5.

Last Saturday (3rd June) was no different. Members sailing the Club Magno required the assistance of Safety Boat crew Dave Peters and Barrie Dain before sailing clear of the harbour. Mike Cook (Pier Head) set a Port B course for both races.

Race 1: The sailing secretary with crew Barbara Harris (Pico) took advantage of the rest of the fleet who appeared to be heading for a wrong mark which cost them time. Johan Allert (Laser) sailed well but misunderstood the finish line and lost a lot of time before
finishing.

Results: 1st Sailing Sec., 2nd Mark Paxton, 3rd Johan Allert.

Race 2: Barbara Harris took the Pico helm and had a good race. Johan had a strong lead and once again sailed well but decided to retire before the end of the race. Andy Roberts (Stratos) moved into 1 st Place and held it to the finish.

Results: 1st Andy Roberts, 2nd Barbara Harris, DNF Johan Allert.
