Wednesday 16th June 2021 Race Report

Teatime Tankard 1

John Dabbs was first to cross the starting line, sailing his Bosun single handed, closely followed by Robin Spiller (Streaker), Leila Farmer and Stephanie Clarke (Hartley 12.2) and Louise and Colin Witchell (Bosun).

The wind strength had picked up a little since preparing for the race and the fleet headed off towards Pinky with the wind coming from the North West.

By the end of the first lap the Bosun of Louise and Colin had passed the Hartley 12.2 of Leila and Stephanie and this order in the fleet remained throughout the rest of the race, with the final results reflecting the order on the water.

The time available to the competitors necessitated a shorter than normal race. John Dabbs (Bosun and Robin Spiller (Streaker) crossed the start line neck and neck followed by Leila Farmer (Hartley 12.2) this time sailing single handed. By the time the first mark was reached Robin had established a comfortable lead over the other two boats which he maintained throughout the race crossing the finishing line first followed by John and then Leila.

With the handicaps applied John Dabbs secured his second win of the day.
