Captain Jack's Monkey says ----

Well Guys,

It's not very often you leave the day not having a good idea who won the day. It came down to the last race of the day to find out who would win the day between Doug, the Admiral and new member Frank Russell. The day was a testing one with the breeze coming from the SW starting at near top of "A' rig and fading thru the day. The bullets were divided equally between the Admiral, Doug, Frank and Jack's Monkey (real name Boo Boo) with 3 apiece and one to the Commodore. As has become the norm for our club the racing was incredibly close with little or no disagreement and penalties were taken with a good grace. The SW course as usual proved difficult to set with the starting line being very biased at the weather end. Despite this bias most starts were relatively incident free with most boats returning if they were over. A couple of starts were called back when too many boats were over at the gun.

At the end of the day the Admiral took out the day from Doug and Frank. In the Legends the Admiral took top spot on the podium from Frank and the Commodore. The Admiral now believes that his boat is a much more valuable commodity and the price will reflect this. I'd recommend anyone interested in a top line boat buy it tomorrow so he won't be able to sail for the next couple of months (just wishful thinking).

We have reached the half way mark for the year and the overall results are also very close. Doug has his nose in front by 1 point from Jack's Monkey and  another 2 points to the Admiral with the Commodore another point back. The Legends is also a close run event with the Admiral ahead by 2 points from the Commodore. Bring on the second half of the season.

Don't forget members are asked to come to a meeting on Saturday at 11.00 am at the bowls club to discuss how we can help conduct the upcoming Eddie Cowell Regatta on the first weekend of August. We always need help with measuring, money collection, observing races, rescue boat and just plain helping wherever needed. Pleeeeeeease come and offer to assist.

Don't forget next Tuesday is the Sail Mooloolaba event. We sail at the Wharf Tavern and the rigging area is at the end of Penny Lane. Best to get there by 10.00 am (Doug especially you) for an 11.00 am start.

Results:

1st   Admiral    29 pts
2nd  Doug       31.25 pts
3rd   Frank       34 pts

Legends:
