WRSC Calendar

Light winds greeted the 12 Streakers to West Riding Sailing Club on Saturday 20th October for the final event in their Super Series and Northern Paddle Series. By 10.30 with no sign of wind and the OOD Tim Keighley took the decision to have an early lunch and postpone the scheduled start. His patience was rewarded as a gentle south westerly breeze filled in allowing the first race to start at 13.00.

Very quickly the first four Streakers of Martin Penty, Ian Jones, Veronica Falat and Neil Firth broke away from the fleet with Penty and Jones breaking again. Despite the wind fluctuating, positions changed little and despite a final charge by Jones on the penultimate leg, Penty held on take first with an unchanged order behind.

 

As the wind continued to fluctuate towards the west, the OOD was forced to juggle the numbers before getting the fleet of for the second race. Falat had a good start rounding the windward mark first, followed by Penty, Firth, and Lucy Priest. With Jones pulling himself from fifth to second on the first lap it only remained for Falat to slip to third to produce the same finishing order as previously. Peter Cogill bettered his first race eighth place with a sixth followed by Peter Kitchen and Giles Therkelson – Smith.

 

In a quick turnaround, the fleet set off on the same course for the final race. Enough was enough for Jones who took an early retirement whilst Penty set of unhindered pursued by Cogill, Kitchen and Firth. Fallat had an infringement at the first mark and dropped to last place. As Penty extended his lead the wind faltered leading Falat and Therkelson -Smith to join Jones on the shore. The OOD held his nerve leaving the fleet on the water for a final lap as the wind picked up. With no change of places at the top Firth finished second chased by Ian Priest and Guy Wheeler.
