The Final Evening of Wednesday Series 2009

  • Wednesday Series Thank Yous

    Catering - June Curtis, Jan Cole, Tessa Groves, Alexis Villiers and, er me, plus of course when no-one else was available, Supafish Molesey!
    Bar - Glen Cole and Eddie Holland
    All the duty teams and everyone who turned out and raced!
    I hope you've enjoyed this season's write ups, and that they've maybe inspired one or two people to get out there and compete themselves, and perhaps also provided the odd smile on a Thursday morning. My thanks to those who have commented - it does help if you know people are reading especially as according to the stats my keenest reader is a Mr Crawl at Yahoo.net...

    Wednesday Series Fun Race
    Well, if only it were like that all the time... Bright sunshine, warm, a cloudless sky, and a nice force 2 breeze. Gorgeous.
    In an appropriately light hearted manner there were unusual numbers of crews on some of the boats, Kevin Pearson sailing a radial rig in light weather to check out his sail for the upcoming worlds, and Bradley Hughes sailing his first ever race in an Optimist. Credit to those who encountered Bradley on the start line in perhaps not the best of places, and just sailed round without inappropriate encouragement! At my end of the start line all was simpler. I didn't see a lot of the race from the end of my plank to be honest, but Kevin Pearson was going extremely fast with the Radial rig - second on the water in front of the pack for chunks of the race, and, as it turned out, second to finish too, ahead of all but Evan Cairns of the full rig Lasers... I hope that bodes well for his Worlds campaign - good luck and keep us posted. I'm fairly sure that I saw Graham Hughes in front at one stage in the Graduate although it was rather in the distance, and he was third to finish on the water. Handicap - well here are the results.
