The safety boat, moored back in the bay after being away for repairs, was a
welcome sight for all members on Saturday.

In the pier head, Andy Roberts and Jane Billing, with the aid of safety boat crew Dave Peters and Paul Gumbleton, set a good Port B course.

In race one, all the fast RS 400 dinghies, sailed by Jon Keast and Sharon Humphreys, Mark Paxton and Alan Peck, and Rob Lawrence and Andy Haywood, had a good start.

Luke Goodern (Laser) sailed well, keeping up with them. Leanne Herbert
and Tom McMahon (Picos) are greatly improving. Though the RS 400s sailed
well, they did not make the first three on handicap.

Results: 1, Luke Goodern; 2, Mike Cook; 3, John Palser; 4, Jon Keast, 5, Mark
Paxton; 6, Tom McMahon; 7, Leanne Herbert; 8, Rob Lawrence.

In race two, two of the crews swapped at helming. Andy Haywood and Alan Peck now helmed their RS 400s. Jon Keast had a better sail.

There was really close racing between Mike Cook (Laser Radial) and John Palser (Laser Radial), several times being inches apart! John Palser lost his lead to Mike by missing a mark, to which he had to return before continuing the race.

In the club Stratos, Babs Harris and Isla Sennen were training. It was Isla’s first ‘real’ sail!

Results: 1, Jon Keast; 2, Luke Goodern; 3, Mike Cook; 4, John Palser; 5, Alan
Peck; 6, Andy Haywood; 7, M Hambling; 8, Leanne Herbert. DNS: Babs Harris.
