Saturday 21st May, Parkstone Saturday Spring series race 6
Wind conditions were the complete opposite to last week. Looking at a gloomy afternoon with rain and a south westerly F 4-5 forecast, 9 boats started for a harbour tour as the tide was running out all afternoon.
The fleet got away all clear with a short windward leg to a laid mark off Brownsea before heading down the harbour towards the entrance. Pete and Jo Allam made a clean start and led the fleet around the course in gusty conditions.
There were a number of exciting reaches and down wind legs around the course before a slow reach back up the harbour towards the Quay.
After a number of retirements the results were:
1st: Pete and Jo Allam
2nd: Dave Tabb and Chewey Sherrell
3rd: Patrick Keats and Chris Jermyn
4th: Christina and Stephen Moncur
5th: Michael Borrill and Mike Gurd
Thank you to Steve Randle and his race officer team for the race today.
