Carsington Solo Open - Report


 

Carsington Solo Open

The first decision this morning was what to offer the Solo racers considering the weather forecast. With the forecast of the wind dying our PRO Henry Wright said 3 raced back to back hoping we could get three races in. A good call Henry. 32 Solos contested the difficult conditions, wind up/ down and big shifts. As usual the cream came to the top; Steve Denison winning with a 2/1, Ian Hopwood second with a 1/3. In the very difficult conditions positions changed and lots of hard luck stories. A special well done to Carsington member Alistair Raynard 5037 finishing 5th overall. There were prizes for 1st Lady helm, 1st Septimus, 1st GM, 1st Vet. A big thank you to all the visitors making a great day of it. Special thanks to our Commodore Steve Blake presenting the prizes and daughter Rosie taking the pictures. Not forgetting all the race team, thank you. A great day was had by all.

John.
