Thursday 28th June saw race 8, the final race of leg 1 of the Sailing Club Thursday night league being completed.

Eleven sailors took part in the final race in a total fleet of 8 boats. This was made up of 5 Lasers and 3 Redwings.

The evening saw fresh winds and a number of sailors joined James Fletcher on the capsize table, with James himself adding to his tally. This particular league is suddenly gaining momentum.

Keith Buchanan and Iain McCulloch took the race with ‘new to the club’ sailor Jim Rosser coming in a fine 2nd place in a Laser.

Keith Buchanan was a clear winner of Leg 1 with Iain McCulloch finishing in 2nd place.

The full results are available on the club website and club notice board.

Next Thursday will see the start of leg 2. The race series is proving increasingly popular and all competent members are welcome.
