Series G race 5
11/08/11 seconds
Ken L/James H 1 1597
Bill J/George G 2 2011
Ken D/Beth H 3 2065

Port course up to Faughan, Conneyburrow, Clarkes Mark x2. Bit more wind tonight, F2+ E, but very damp on our arrival at Club, after some discussion enough enthusiasm was built up to launch, and Kevin/Liam and George D (rescue boat) kindly ran the race. Bill J and Ken D had good race together, and only the timely advice of George gave Bill J’s GP boat the edge at the end.
