Racing Results

Results updated 18th April

Wednesday
A warm evening with sun and some decent wind apart from some dead spots, and thirteen boats on the water from six fleets. Something (legal) needs to be done about Mr Fischer though, two out of two so far, who's going to get past him?

Spring 1 updated - 22nd April is the final week of this short series. Also updated, Bank Holiday series; Enterprise and Laser Sunday fleets added. 

Spring has finally sprung and out from hibernation came some welcome additions to Sunday morning racing. A total of sixteen boats from Laser, Pico, Enterprise and RS300 fleets were seen on the water on a warm day with a good, relatively steady breeze for Aldenham. It was a great advert and hopefully a good omen for the season. 

The trial of a single start with both Portsmouth Yardstick and Personal Handicaps recorded allows you to measure your performance against the other sailors in two ways. A side effect is that we will all improve our starting technique with a more crowded line than we have been accustomed to. As more results come in we'll see who's improving their racing, hopefully providing encouragement to those of us languishing at the back of the fleet. We will welcome your comments as we see how this Sailing Committee initiative progresses.
