Icebreaker Series Report

The Icebreaker Series reached a conclusion today (Sunday 26th March) with glorious sunshine, warm temperatures and a good wind from the East down the Mere.
The PRO and ARO set 3 good courses from boat starts, covering the length of the water, from I or A down to E or F. The wind at the top of the course also benefited from the recent work on the trees around I and H.

The top scorers were spread across 3 different classes:
First – Dave Nicholson (Laser)
Second – Phil Barnes (Solo)
Third – Martin and Sian Joesbury (RS200)

A total of 33 sailors took part, with 15 qualifying, so a good turnout during a March month that was kind to us, with good wind and good sailing!

A ‘remnant’ from the Budworth Pairs, a Firefly was the ‘scratch’ boat, with Solo, GP14, Laser and RS200 following on. Ted Garner in the Solo quickly caught up his handicap of 1 minute 11 seconds to overtake the Firefly, and thereafter a ‘battle royal’ began [read more...]
