PRACC Round 9 Results 15 October 2017

October 15, 2017

Peter Wiles wins PRACC round 9 held at Gosport 15th October by 2 points from Derek Morland with Colin Trower just a further 2 points back in third.

PRACC 9 Results PRACC Round 9

A close result where no less than 6 different skippers recorded race wins (excluding the seeding races) from the 10 race fleeted meeting.

Unfortunately the forecast Southerly came very nearly true just off SSW meaning that the beats had to be almost directly across the lake after a port reach drag race from the start.

Colin Trower and Gosport’s RA Class Captain, Paul Edwards took firsts in the 2 seeding races.   The next 3 races however illustrated how the day would likely continue with Peter Wiles, Derek Morland and Colin Trower jockeying over 1st 2nd and 3rd.  Peter Fothergill had a purple patch from races 5 to 7 but slipped in the final 3 races such that the 2 6th places, earlier being among his potential and actual discards had to be counted.

Mike Nichols lost out to Peter on countback but managed a win in Race 7.

Thanks to all the skippers for their support and hopefully we shall see more at the final Poole round in  a couple of weeks time.
