Racing Results

Spring 1 starts as Spring arrives

After a false start a couple of weeks ago when, on 10 March, all racing was abandoned due to strong winds, the Spring series started with a bang today.  An excellent turnout of 10 boats enjoyed the spring like weather, glorious sunshine and a gentle north-westerly.  It was especially great to see the likes of Alan Glinert back out on the water...

In the first race Marcus initially made life difficult for himself by being a few minutes upwind of the start when the gun went, but the rest of the fleet had an enjoyable tussle with James LC eventually managing to edge out ahead for much of the race.  Extensive place changing went on in the chasing pack and then, 38 minutes into a 40 minute race, David Lambert got a shift/gust which he chose not to share and crept into the lead to take the gun by two seconds.

The breeze built a bit for the second race and brought some hiking conditions.  This time James managed to stay ahead of David for the whole race giving him the current series lead.  However David's performance - which he reckoned to be his best start to a spring series in many years - has earned him the lead on Personal Handicap.

There are three more weeks of Spring 1 - it would be great to build on today's numbers out on the water!

The results can be found here.  

To make the scorer's life easier all the different results are now all on one web page which shows:

  1. the Club-wide Portsmouth Yardstick results
  2. the Club-wide Personal Handicap results
  3. Fleet results for those fleets that have more than two starters (ie currently Lasers and Enterprises)
  4. Detailed individual race results for all of the above.

Hopefully this new format is sufficiently clear?
