Spring/Summer Series 2014
The winners are :-
The rules for this series led to some complicated calculations but there was no doubt that Mel was the deserving winner. Good to have Geoff back officiating and offering advice on the last day. Also good to see that everyone is noticably improving!
There will be some additional rules for this series.
1) It will be your best seven results that count for the series. This allows for a large number of discards and seemed to be a successful formula when tried in the last icicle series.
2) Only one day in a new laser will be allowed to count towards your results. This means that if you want to win you will have to spend time in the other boats. This rule has been added so as to allow the lasers to be shared around more fairly. In particular there are a lot of new members at this time of year and we want to encourage them and not allow the new lasers to be hogged by the same people. If you use a new laser on more than one day then it is your best days results that count.
Funboat Cup 2014
Winner - Mel
Mel gets the Bernie Hayes memorial trophy. The booby prize was a dual pen-holder snow-dome with a yellow Buddha! It was good to see a large number of funboats out all racing at the same time and I think it provided quite a challenge for some of us to cope with their unusual sailing characteristics!
Icicle Series 2014
ICICLE SERIES 2014 - FINAL RESULTS
Winner - James Driver.
Runner up - Jorrit
Best Lady - Mel
James is the deserving winner in this very hard fought series. He managed this despite his racing commitments elsewhere and despite generally strong conditions. A special mention for Hendrick who also got a very good result. I would be grateful if everyone can return their trophies so I can get them engraved in time for the BBQ.
Bahia Mini Series
Ist prize awarded to Stephen Driver and Caroline Brown
Most improved adult - Melodie
Most improved youth (this and sunset series) - Becky
Apologies to Melodie and Simon B as Day 1 results appear to have been missed.
Tues Evening Spring Sunset series
To keep things simple only first three positions count.
Only Topaz and Toppers are included in the series results.
3 points for first, 2 for second and 1 for third.
I hope the results for the final day are correct - the rain destroyed my scoresheet! Well done to Jack for a convincing win.
Well done to Caroline Brown for most improved/consistency prize.
