Check out the email notice for the race results front page photo I think.
Back to Division 1. All boats want the SRC end and be first away, so not much room and you can hear the crews from all boats counting down the clock, we did not jump the start this week and had a good position on the gun.
Run in tide and not a lot of wind, the 4 boats all had good starts. Back and forth slowly we all worked our way towards Searle’s. Willo knows the river well and with SF and AX playing together. We were on the other side of the river able to do our own thing, over and over.
Slowly we made more headway towards No6 mark with the lead, great work at the rounding by Ron and Paul, got Big Red up and full heading to No1 with more movement.
We could see BV sailing well looking great in the Red shirts all along the rail, great to have them back on the water.
Passed Xena at the bridge, SF and AX still playing together changing positions on the other side of the river to us. Ron and Paul working the kite with George’s help now, so drinks called all round.
At No1 we check the race time and it’s been 90 minutes and only at the second mark.
What will Anne be thinking back at the club, short course we hope as the breeze back off.
Yes, the board goes up and horn sounded as we approach the finish line then 1st across the line.
We see BV heading to No1 and SF and AX working their way home.
A great day on the water and all smiles on the four boats, thanks to Anne we are home in daylight.
Till next week’s race Regards to All, Crew LoEG
