No pictures this time as it was too cold for anyone to operate a camera! The Icicle series really lived up to it's name today and yet it warms my heart to report eight hardy soles venture into the unknown and came to play, they were rewarded by the weather by what can only be described as a mixed bag! Sometimes it was light and tricky, sometimes it was strong and tricky other times it blew quite sweetly but not everywhere and so being on the right track was important too.
All that having been said there was some great racing with boats matching up performances throughout the fleet, Keith Bell was the star of this round and has cemented his position at the top of the table, the next four, Peter Shepherd, Mike Ewart, Peter Jackson and Geoff Raygada all had their moments and in the end were only covered by 8 points.
At the back newcomer Ian Bell and Derek Lane were having their own private battle with a number of close finishes.
Richard Dolman made the treck up from home only to go out early with a servo/battery issue.
A most enjoyable mornings racing.
