TT Series Overall after Woodspring

The TT Series Overall after 3 rounds and  the rescheduled TT#5 at Woodspring are as follows:

RG65 TT#5 @ Woodspring

The nine committed sailors that found their way to Woodspring near Bristol for the TT5 of the RG65 class were not disappointed. The rainy night gave way to a mostly sunny day and brisk westerly wind. Thank you to Woodspring MSC, particularly Race Secretary Alan Barnstable, for supporting the RG65 class on such short notice after the event could not be held in Bournville due to weed.
The course was set along the north side of the lake and racing started timely after the skippers’ briefing. Most skippers choose their B rigs, with some changing between B and C through the day. Consistency came from Tobi Laux, who, in the end, won all but one race. The only race he lost was to Rohan Williams who sailed well to secure an overall second place. In third place was Chris Elliott who had a terrible morning but a much improved afternoon session. The remaining places were keenly contested with many lead changes and tight finishes making for entertaining sailing.
The whole race was well sailed with all skippers showing great honesty with penalties or when over the line at the start. Its encouraging that the event was possible without any officials.
We are looking forward to the next meeting!
