Colin Westerberg wins on the day, Colin sailed really consistently, finishing the day with six 1st and five 2nd placings. Greg had his moments but wasn't sailing with the same consistency.
The breeze started in the NE at 10 - 15 kts, finishing in the East at 15 - 20 kts. The breeze was swinging considerably when it had some north in it and more settled as it moved to the East.
Andrew was always on the money at the start line generally getting the better of everyone, whether it be windward or leeward end start. Both Colin and Greg's boat speed were good enough over the morning to nullify Andrews start advantage.
A special note has to be made on the performance of Brian Eustace with his Britpop, Brian had his boat showing great speed and height to windward, and on occasions was placed amongst the front end of the fleet for extended periods. Ian was also with speed to windward, Ian was however unhappy with his downwind speed, look out for Ian next week after he readjusts his sheeting stroke to get his sails out further downwind. Harold had to call his day short with an electrical problem which he couldn't resolve on site.
Thanks again Geoff Cass for doing the scoring over the morning. Geoff's help makes a sailing more enjoyable without having to roster skippers over the morning to share the load and generally gets one or two more races in over the day.
It was great to see Brian Schnieder returning for a sail after the New Year. Brian managed to get the MR MOST IMPROVED on the day, the maths ignores DNS scores and Brian managed to place better in his last races than earlier. The maths throws up some interesting results with Colin getting the MR STEADY on the day and Greg nominated as MR CONSISTENT, which would make more sense going to Colin.
