CHRISTCHURCH MODEL YACHT CLUB

EC12 National Champs Day2

Conditions were similar to yesterday, only a little sunnier. There were many frustrations for the sailors. Vern Guy changed rigs, but still had troubles and ended up pulling out. Ian Kington kept losing his boat due to electrical faults. 

Race officer and his committee worked hard and did a great job. At the finish line and computer tabulating results were Keith Lord and Allan Cook. Again great job, guys! (in spite of some mutterings about xxxx computers).

3 heats were raced back to back, then a 5 minute break, then another 3 heats etc. This was the race format all day and seemed to work well with sailors being able to mend or tweak their boats in the breaks. 

Here are a few photos. A small preview if you like. After the event I'll endeavour to put a series in the photo gallery.
