6 competitors arrived for this event in good weather for December and a reasonable breeze from the WNW although it did tend to swirl around quite a bit .

We laid a windward leeward course with a gate at the leeward end.

There was some extremely close racing with no less than 5 different race winners out of the 12 races that we sailed.

However it was Les Thorn that mastered the gusts and changes of wind direction best of all to win the day with a total of 5 wins.

This now puts Les near the top of the leaderboard alongside 4 other skippers who are intending to sail in the last of the series on the 15th December. This promises to be a mouth watering event to see who will be the overall series winner.

All of the competitors are also wanting to sail in the forthcoming Brass Monkey event on the 11th December to get in more practice of the challenging Abbey Meads conditions.
