THE WINTER SERIES RACE 3.

Race 2 was cancelled.
Jennifer Gilbert observing from Swan REPORTED,
"Many thanks to Russell for coming on board Swan for today’s race. Pity about the wind – or rather, lack of same. We started with no more than 5kn from the West, then the breeze turned North and faded away.
The day finished with absolutely glassy waters and mild sunshine.
Course 5 was selected, hoping that the wind would improve, as promised by the weather forecast.
We had to finish at the first grass beds mark at 2.30 as there was no hope of completing the full course.
However we did get a result:

1 Wavedancer Dave Hatton

2 Drizabone Tom Fricke

DNF Indulgence Colin Bishop"

Congratulations to David Hatton for being skipper and crew. Frank Mcmahon sailed with Colin Bishop, Tom was accompanied by Andrew Giles, Tilly Giles, and Bryan Kelly.
The engineless (don't ask) Indulgence was forced to perform a controlled drift down the Creek and ultimately retired, defeated by by such still conditions and the ebb then flood tide.
