Summer Series All class Handicap Day 5

The event yesterday was the final day of the Summer Series All Class Handicap, and was staged at the Aotea Lagoon. Four hardy souls arrived, to be greeted by a good southerly (I cant remember the last time we struck a southerly at this site) and what a change from the normal un-predictable northerlies that we normally put up with at this venue. The first race was very trying , we found the gusts just too much for the ‘A’ rig, so we all too time out to change down to old faithful ‘B’ rig.  Ed and myself had sailed at this venue before but not under these conditions. But both of us soon got to grips with the wind changes. Rod had not sailed here before and was a bit bluffed by the conditions, David  fared no better. Once the handicaps were finalized the final results were very close. The R.O. for the day alternated between John McPherson (as a visitor) and Darrell.’
