Parkstone Autumn Series

Bob and Huw winners Autumn series race 3Saturday 17 October Autumn series race 3 and mini series race 2
A rather grey day with a moderate but shifty northerly wind greeted today’s teams of 13 boats.

For race one, Race Officer Iain Lamey set an olympic triangle course directly in front of the Club house. The fleet got away first time, with Bob Alexander and Huw Willetts taking a small lead at the windward mark and they would extend their lead, leaving others to compete for the remaining places. Pete and Jo Allam, and Chris Gorringe and Nadia Hosie fought hard for second place with Pete and Jo coming out on top.

2nd Race (Race 2 of the mini series)

Chris and Nadia winner mini series race 2
The 2nd race was a windward leeward course with the wind shifting. It was a surprise that the fleet got away first time and those choosing the right side of the beat gained handsomely. It was Chris and Nadia that rounded the first mark in the lead. The conditions were such that they could never feel comfortable with their lead, the strongest challenge coming from Pete and Jo who, at the finish, got within half a boat length of overtaking the leaders.
