POOLE PRACC 23rd March

14 Started but only 6 managed to finish – a pretty high attrition rate but having said that a day which most found enjoyable. As you might gather it was a day of fairly strong winds which varied from 15 to 30 miles per hour – maybe a bit more in some of the stronger gusts. Plenty of time had to be allowed for sail changes and repairs but we still managed 16 races enabling 3 discards to be taken into account. On the plus side the wind direction from the North West allowed a long course to be set virtually down the length of the lake. Another bonus was the weather which, apart from a couple of very short showers provided plenty of sunshine.

The winner at the end of the day was Peter Wiles whose score, after discarding 2 3rds and a 2nd left him with 13 points to count. Vernon Appleton finished in 2nd place after winning the first 2 races followed by a string of 2nds. John White came third with his Venom followed by Richard Uttley and Bob Connor.

1st Peter Wiles Poole 13 points
