Saturday 8th October Autumn Series race 2.
“Its never over until its over”
15 boats on the water today, Race Officer Ian Laimey set an olympic traingle course in the light northerly wind.
The fleet got away first time, and were tightly bunched at the first mark, Bob Alexander & Huw Willetts rounded in front, just clear of Mike Kilbee & Ron Elliot.
Alexander /Willetts maintained their position at the front despite strong pressure from Crispin Read Wilson/Steve Brown & Dave Tabb/Chewy Sherrell.
As the leaders rounded the final leeward mark, Alexander/Willetts must have felt confident of taking the victory, however the wind dropped and they were passed on both sides by the Tabb and Read Wilson boats.
1st Crispin Read Wilson & Steve Brown

3rd Bob Alexander & Huw Willetts
