Robin Spiller – 4th Sep
The Roadford Sailing Club held a long bank holiday weekend of races 27-29 August. Only Sue Murray attended but she sailed most of them and got a couple of sevenths in fleets numbering more than twenty.
The following Wednesday, 31 August, Linda Spiller (Laser Radial), John Dabbs and David Perrett (Bosun) and Adam Hilton (Solo) were going to have a little improvised race but Adam blew it by capsizing before the start and having to be towed in.
On Sunday 4 Sep the weather started better than forecast and Sue Murray, Linda Spiller (Laser 4.7s) and Adam Hilton (Solo) joined in the informal RLSC race for a couple of laps before the squalls started. Adam Hilton managed to stay upright and Linda Spiller managed to unentangle her mainsheet from the course buoy which had grabbed it.
