Watermead TT – 9 June 2019

13 Skippers turned out for the 09:45 briefing from PRO Clive Bardell at Watermead for round 4 of the RG65 TT on Sunday 9 June.

Glassy spots on the lake were an indication that the forecast was correct, but in the end the wind filled nicely for the day, well, till the last of the 16 races on the day.  Indeed, 16 races were sailed before the 16:30 cutoff and it is safe to say that the day proved be good fun for all those competing.

Mrs Tushingham beat Mr Tushingham into 2nd place in race one which clearly upset him as he went on to score 12 wins on the day, tarnishing his overall score with a 2nd place after the 3 discards.

Phil Holliday managed a brace of wins on his way to 2nd overall with John Brierley taking 3rd place on the day.

Great to see the 9 different designs of Rg65 carrying both Swing and Conventional rigs mixing up the racing proving that there is no one design that is running away with all the honours.

Well done to the race team at Watermead for running the day so efficiently.
