RACE 2

Wow, after an inauspicious first day of the Sailing Association Mar Menor’s Autumn Series, the second day on  September 18th was fantastic with perfect weather and exciting racing.

The races take place from the CAR Sailing Centre at Los Narejos on the Mar Menor and are run under the RYA Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system.

The morning race started at 11am in a gentle 6.5 to 7.5 knot westerly wind with 8 boats competing over three laps of a short anticlockwise course. The light wind proved difficult for some and the results on corrected time were:-

1st          John Clarke                       Miracle                 44mins 25secs

2nd        Tug Wilson                         Laser 2000           49mins 22secs

3rd         John Down                         Pastanaca             56mins 18secs

4th         Janice Penning                   Laser 13                57mins 56secs

5th         Vernon O’Byrne                  Gamba                  59mins 56secs

6th         Edward Penning                  Weta                     78mins 09secs

The Deltania and Sea Hopper did not finish.

By 2.30pm the wind had backed to South, South East and increased to 11 to 13 knots so the start line was changed and a figure of eight course set. Six boats started and fought an exciting three lap contest to provide a really exciting finish with only 16 minutes separating the whole fleet and only 1 second between the first and second placed boats. The results on corrected time were:-

1st          Tug Wilson                       Laser 2000           32mins 36secs

2nd        John Clarke                       Miracle                 32mins 37secs

3rd         E. Penning                        Weta                    42mins 23secs

4th         Ingo Wilson                      Gamba                 44mins 28secs

5th         Janice Penning                  Laser 13               44mins 28secs

RACE1

 

The first race day of the Sailing Association Mar Menor’s Autumn Series on September 4th got off to a bad beginning.

The races take place from the CAR Sailing Centre at Los Najeros on the Mar Menor and the competitors and officials arrived to find that a children’s Optimist dinghy race was also organised. Just as the SAMM morning race was starting the crew of the safety boat were approached by organisers of the children’s race and told to change the course that had been set to avoid a clash. The resulting last minute confusion led to the race being abandoned.

The afternoon race started promptly at 2.30pm and six boats fought an exciting 3 lap contest in 15 to 17 knot winds. The racing is run under the RYA Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system and the results on corrected time were:-

1st          John Clarke and Doreen Squires                Miracle               51mins 15secs

2nd        John Down and Mike Harding                     Laser 2000          53mins 17secs

3rd         O. Midttun, L. Anderson

  1. Young and B. Young           Gamba               55mins 6secs

4th         E. Penning and H. Lenhard                        Weta                  57mins 48secs

5th         B. Murray and O. Fseldsbo                         Weta                 64mins 59secs

The Deltania of D and M. Scott did not finish.

Everybody is looking forward to the next race day on September 18th and the special MABS Cancer Support race on September 25th.
