OOD Mike Thompson
Sailors raced for the Lipton Cup. There were 8 boats on the water with 7 eligible for the Lipton Cup. Mike, as OOD, set a course which took the boats on a large 3 lap circuit of the lake with a long list of mark instructions to follow. A mixed set of wind conditions made for challenging sailing. Ahead of the fleet Anil & Michelle and Duncan & Gail battled for the honours & the rest of the fleet for the remaining places. Anil & Michelle won the battle & of course the Lipton Cup. Well done to them & to Duncan & Gail for putting up such a fight. Full results to be found on the website
In the concurrent fleet race Capt. Per raced over the line well ahead of everyone else in his Nacra. A beautiful sight when she catches the stronger winds. With Boat & Personal Handicap it was in fact Ernst who the fleet race.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the delicious tandoori wrap lunch which followed the racing. Thank you Gail.
