Race Report – Sunday 15th March

FF Race Review Sunday 15th March

Sunday morning greeted the club sailors with a 12-15 knot ENE and an icy chill in the air so it was a hardy fleet which put to the water. At least thankfully for the crews the threatened rain held off.

Race 1

The course was set with a castle end start. Once over the start line the tactics saw the lead boats making a course behind the pier towards the windward mark.

From there it’s was a steady reach with kites around the gybe mark and back to the leeward mark. As with the previous weeks a well-planned course was apparent making for some fast laps.

At the windward mark of second lap the standings were as follows

Brett Dingwall and Jonathan Clark (confusingly borrowing Charles’s 3957 sails!) from John Hanson & Helen Hepworth (3954) who were just edging out Dominick and David Hume in (3559) with Stephen Hopson & Robert Simmons 4029, holding off Mike Clapp and Trevor Brant (3427) and Mervyn Wright and George Caspall (3904), nursing a broken kicker.

On the final lap the boats were spread out just a little further with the main battle taking place for 4th and 5th. The pace remained fast with the last lap the quickest of the three.

The race finished in the same order as had been held throughout. With Brett and Jonathan (3957) taking the win from John & Helen (3954) who after a race long tussle just pipped the Humes (3559) for second place.

 

Race 2

The cloud cover remained 100% but the rain still held off and the wind just dipped a knot or two for the second race.

This time around the racing was even more clinical with Mervyn and George pushing the front three all the way round.

After the first lap it was again Brett and Jonathan (3957) leading from Dominick and David (3559) who were just holding off John and Helen (3954)

The first two laps saw very close racing for 2nd, 3rd and 4th positions. On the return of the second lap the front four displayed different tactics with 3957 & 3954 heading round to the starboard starboard of the tower and 3559 & 3904 heading port of it. The decision of the boats going to starboard paid off with John & Helen 3954, rounding the mark ahead of Dominick & David 3559 but only just! Mervyn & George closely following in 3904

The final leg saw some fast steady racing with the boats finishing in the following order 3957, 3954, 3559, 3904, 4029 and 3427 with four minutes between first and last.

 

Charles and his various crews currently lead the series from John and Helen leaving one race left of the winter series to decide the final positions.

To re-iterate on that note next weekend will be the last practice run before the Mercedes Open which is the following weekend 28th / 29th March

The event is running a couple of weeks later than last year and we have already had entries from Parkstone and Chew. It would be great to see all the “Fifteen FF’s” in the current series along with visitor entries on the start line a week on Saturday!

So please dust off the covers and get that final series result and practice in before the main event.

Best Regards

DWSC FF’s
