Nationals day 2 – still foggy!

Fog persisted on day 2 of the Nationals which caused a further postponement. However, the PRO made an inspired decision to review the conditions at 1500 hours. The fog had started to disperse by then and we managed to get in three short races. Two of these were sailed in a reasonably steady force 2 but the wind was starting to soften by the third race and faded away at the end of the first beat causing the race to be shortened at the end of the first reach. Race 1 was won by Guy Marks and Mel Titmuss. Race 2 was won by Len Jones and Pete Mitchell while Race 3 was won by Richard Stone and Catherine Gore. Mike Mac and Simon Townsend finished second in each of the three races sailed.

Overall results (top five):-
1st Mike Mac and Simon Townsend, (6)
2nd Len Jones and Pete Mitchell (7)
3rd Guy Marks and Mel Titmuss (15)
4th Bill Whitney and John Shelton (18)
5th Richard Stone and Catherine Gore (20)
