A good south-westerly provided testing conditions and some work for the safety boat. Kelvin was desperately unlucky to fall foul of a big gust seconds before crossing the line in the first race, but all five Lasers and one Enterprise had a good run out. Colin Carver was consistent throughout and took two well-deserved wins. Six more races to go to the end of the series and there are still three possibles for first place.
Change to series dates, OOD rota and scoring
The Sailing Committee has decided the Spring Working Party needs to be on 28th February so the Winter Series is now reduced by two races to eighteen, but will still finish on 6th March.
For this series, on projected participants, some sailors will have to perform more than one OOD/AOD day's duty and will be chosen fairly by Colin (in other words not in a way that boosts his chances). Those rostered in this way will be scored for all the duties they perform, not just the single day as usual.
David Lambert and Anthony Muller are sailing Laser Radial for the series.
