Day 1 Southern Championships at Shoreham SC.

Day 1 Southern Championships at Shoreham SC.

The wind was softer than expected but three races was still hard work. The sun shone for the briefing but not for the racing. The tide was out when we came ashore. Loads of mud. We did three triangle/sausage races of four rounds. Andrew and Tom Wilson led at the first windward mark but that was the only time Mac and Simon Townsend were headed all day. Three wins for them. Lovely three sail reaches.

Overall at the end of day 1:

1st, Mac/Townsend

2nd, Andrew/Tom Wilson

3rd, Bill Whitney/John Shelton

4th, Tim/Jacqueline Townsend

5th, Brian/Liz McKenzie

6th, Brian Lamb/Sue Risbridger.
